This plant has an unfortunate clonal name, as it is not actually a true alba (the lip marking indicates this). Instead, it is more appropriately called "albanistic", as the lip markings are not strong (compare with Low's Cymbidium (Cymbidium lowianum), which is one of the grandparents and where the "V" lip marking comes from).
