Paph. lunatum is now propagated from seeds and is becoming increasingly available. I bought four young plants - one of them is currently flowering in the normal colouration, while another plant could be described as having a semi alba colouration. Unfortunately, this flower did not fully bloom because the flower stalk turned brown from below. I therefore had to remove this flower and disassemble it into its components in order to photograph it. On the left you can see the plant that I would like to call semi alba - on the right a plant with normal coloring is shown:






Both the flower stalk and the underside of the leaves indicate an albino form. However, this can only be finally determined with the next flower.
