This has been 'in spike' since July and opened at the end of February, not an uncommon thing for the species. Large and well-colored and marked. I only wish it were a more robust grower. It has remained a one-growth plant for years, though it has bloomed every other year or so, and I am hoping that I see a second new growth at the base which would at least be a start to a multigrowth plant. No fragrance I coud detect, though I haven't checked at all times as it's up high enough that I have to pull out the ladder. I will check again tomorrow during watering, which requires the ladder anyway. I grow this in a tall 3.5" square plastic pot with a mesh bottom in a medium bark/spongerock/jhand-chopped-sphagnum mix. It is kept moist year-round, grown in medium liight in intermediate to warm temperatures.

Very nice....yes, budding time is extremely long at this species. Mine produced a relatively short budding time in last year, it took "only" 5 months....
