That's a handsome plant. The flowers are attractive, but I imagine the plant itself looks quite good without them. What is the fragrance like?

the smell is very earthy. not exactly floral though not offensive at all. very subtle and dissipates fast. you have to keep smelling it and I wonder if you can smell em up?..

over all a refreshing scent bec it is different..
and thank you all for looking. dont know how to get a pic of all 22 blooms.

a welcome back bloom out means more to come no doubt.

Holy smokes! That's amazing. I've tried a few of these with no luck. Teach me your ways Mr Miyagi! So pretty. Nicely done.

2 big secrets, right here exposed. They live in a climate controlled 'box' and get treated like thus 2 times daily. They stay about 75 degrees and 65% humidity. The fogger is a small frog fogger that lives in a humidity tray filled with water. Uses 24 ozs a day. The foggers got expensive too. Alsoo, a tiny little fan runs all the time 24/7 so always lots of air. The front opens up and I let the AC to the house cool them some.
The " Box" can be a killer too.
