||This is a beautiful orchid and very easy to keep, probably the cast iron plant of orchids in my opinion!. What the site fails to mention for the novice (and i include myself in this as i only keep a few orchids on my window sills at home) is that this orchid has a beautiful scent which fills the room, but is not over powering. It sends up flower spikes from previous years growth (growth is compact), mines currently got 12 and its only in a five and a half inch clay pot. These spikes are long lasting, for several months. In view of the above, if your not into big showy flowers and something which is simple, but beautiful i recommend this. Im just glad i found this site so i can purchase the alba!
