It is a variety of the Epidendrum calanthum orchid species. Unlike the typical form with colorful flowers, this variety produces elegant white blooms. The alba variety still retains the distinctive structure of Epidendrum calanthum's flowers but in a more subdued and elegant color palette. Its care requirements are similar to the regular variety, needing bright indirect light, well-draining soil, and appropriate humidity levels. Regular watering and occasional feeding during the active growing season support its healthy development. This variation offers a refreshing twist on the classic Epidendrum calanthum, making it a sought-after choice for orchid enthusiasts.
