    The world albino has its roots in the latin word 'alba' or 'white'
    that makes no logic

    The term albino isn't generally used for plants, unless somebody registers a cultivar called 'Albino'. Anthocyanin free plants should be called all green or anthocyanin free, unless the term forma heterophylla has been registered.
    As talked about in the Schnell's Ghost thread in the sarra forum, very white topped, yellow flowered, green or red ultra fine veined leucophyllas are known as alba, although I don't know what kind of status this term has. Pale drosera capensis varieties are called variety alba, which is a correct term I believe.
