    Old style, no 1/2 dunkel or 1/2 alba, just a del. One of the plants that stuck with me through the years. Will update when/ if all 5 are open

    Thanks all! It gets hung in a magnolia tree in my back yard when everything goes out. Heavy shade, high temps, high humidity, plenty of fresh air. It's in desperate need of a new pot when it gets done blooming.

    I'm not completely slipperless!

    No s/h, it gets rained on and pooped on by birds :p
    Lots of water in the summer, very dry in the winter. I try to give my plants seasons. Two of the blooming growths matured in less than a year.

    Looks like Spring! Does it smell like roses at your house?

    The rose scent is getting overwhelmed by the lemon of Clowesia and the jalapeño of Mormodes lol.
