Braemia vittata is native from the deep colombian rain forest in the amazonian basin.
I found it in the wild three years ago and I was very surprised by the intense chocolate-vanilla scent... it is just incredible!

It is in bloom this week.

Is a plant really hard to pollinate, i`ve been trying to pollinate it for almost 30 mins and I am not sure if I was succesful.

very attractive dark chocolate colour.
Use a magnifying glass and trim off the petals and lip so you can see what you're doing.

Wow! That's beautiful. I wish you could send one to me. :)
Hi Eric, this is my only plant. I took a very small division (2 psb) of the wild plant and it is flowering for the first time... I selfed it so we have to wait at least two years...

I love it! How big is the plant? Can you please show us a photo of the plant?
See attached a picture of my wife holding it.
The flowers are nice... but the scent is incredible... is like being in front of a warm chocolate cupcake with vanilla topping.:drool:
