Hello Dewald ,

                      My guess is that the lack of pigment  expressed  in this plant qualifies it as " ALBA "
Compare the Yellow ovaries and pollen sacks to the white of the flowers !
The leaves are a very light , lime green .....  very beautiful .

Regards,
              Lionel

Beautiful Johann ,
                            I would say so but please remember that I am just a layman with a very limited knowledge of genetics .
Many years ago ,when I first became interested in clivias , we used to call all Yellow clivias " Albino "
Alba or albino is a term used by botanists to describe a lack of pigment being expressed in a plant ...in this case ANTHOCYANIN .
By  " Expressed " I am meaning Blocked .
 The possibility that some or all of the offspring might be Pigmented should be there .
I see the ovaries are yellow and the leaves look like they are a lovely green .
I am sure there are others more knowledgeable than I am who could confirm or correct my writings .
Your plant is a gem , thanks for sharing .
A question , were the selfed seeds pigmented or unpigmented .
Regards,
             Lionel.

Hi Lionel
The selfed seed was only put into my homemade germinator about two weeks ago and roods formed only about 5mm long when i checked yesterday
Will report when bigger.

Johann,

On my screen I detect a faint blush in the second pic. Sometimes as the flowers mature this becomes evident.

I must admit clivia colours confuse me!

Hi Randal
In the photo it looks like the flower are blush but it is very white with some transparency in the flower
