    Cool name! It is a pretty flower.
    Is there a way to change the color (through soil nutrients? or some other means) or is it white only?

    No, there isn't. This species produces white flowers, hence the name "candida" which basically means "white".

    Absolutely nothing wrong with the color, I didn't mean to imply that if I did. :)
    White is the color of innocence, it is a very nice shade/color.
    I was just wondering if the colors could change because for some flowers it is as easy as changing the soil.

    Cool! :)
