When first I saw a delenatii in bloom I was instantly a goner. I realized I haven't shown mine off here yet, and that won't do!

I took this one home in spike, and the anticipation waiting for the bud to swell was exciting. I'm quite pleased with how the flower turned out.

Thanks all! I did detect a mild grassy scent with a hint of something floral. I hear the vinicolor/dunkel has a stronger fragrance?

Not sure about that, but I believe it is more up to the individual plant as I have not found any delenatii that is fragrant.

Oh, I see. I have heard delenatii described as definitely fragrant, but mine has a very mild scent as mentioned. I thought it was an anomaly since I expected a stronger scent, but if you've come across several non-fragrant ones it may be more common than I assumed.
