    Hello Kirk , I don't think anyone has that white vft yet , not in cultivation yet and probably being propagated in TC for wider distribution . I'm sure it will be available commercially in the future . There has also been some controversey on this plant a while back saying that it would be weak because the white leaves could not photosynthesize because of the absence of chlorophyll but from the pictures I've seen , half of the plant is green so I think it can support itself [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Does anyone know if the mutation is stable or if it is just temporary?

    Only time can answer that question, BCK. At present, I have a two year seedling of S. purpurea ssp. venosa forma luteola that is all white except for the hood. I have no idea if this will keep this color or not, but it would be a beautiful plant if it did. Only the hood is green and a green stripe goes up the outer edge of the ala. Definitely different. Similarly, I have had a VFT or two that showed albinistic tendencies. These were eventually liberated from my collection, and I have no idea if they kept their white striped traps or not. And I have never seen another.
