    Epi peperomia alba

    Used to be called Epi porpax. Received this in trade a few years back from one of our members. A nice compliment to my normal colored one. This one is on a cork mount.

    Looking good, Ron. I bought one from Andy's and it bloomed pretty quick for me. I can't say I like it better than the normal colored one, though.

    I like the alba! I have the regular colored one, and it startles me every year when it blooms. It never fails, I catch it out of the corner of my eye and think the plant is covered in beetles! Duh.

    I'll go along with everybody else and really like the alba one! Not crazy about the other. Now I need to find one of those. Thanks a whole bunch!!!!

    Very cool. I want one. My normal flavor one grows like a weed.
