Cute little 1" long flower -- and it's fragrant.

Very nice, Dot! Do you give this one the same conditions as speciosum and/or kingianum?

I think it's a warmer grower than either of those, and it likes lower light and water throughout the year. It's in my East window in my intermediate sunroom, and I water it 2x a week.

Nice bloom!

I have this one and it is the slooooowest growing thing I have ever seen. One new growth last year, one new growth coming right now. Zzzzzzz. Maybe I'm not giving it enough water - only once a week. Hmmmm....

Beautiful close-up! I love these Dens and their pendant growth habit. So very cool.
