I absolutely love this species, and even though I have had it for only a few months, it has done quite a bit! The flowers are a really brilliant golden yellow dotted with rusty red splotches. They also smell heavily of irises and seem to be quite tolerant of temperature extremes.

Wonderful. This is such an interesting genus. I would love to grow them if I had the right set-up. Thank you for sharing!
If you want to try them, I would go for it! I don't really give mine special care, as it just summers outside under a tree and is wintering with grow lights in my house. Though I don't really have enough experience to say for sure, they seem like a pretty easygoing and rewarding choice!

Here's another picture of spike one! In the back, you can see a second spike ready to bloom. For those in SOOS, you may have seen it in the virtual show table of this October.
