    There are a few Epi species with this look, like parkinsonianum. They are lovely! How is the night fragrance with yours, Stephen?

    Has a great sweet/spicy scent starting about 1/2 hour after sundown (providing there are no lights on in the room).

    NICE! Time to sit in the dark with a nice glass of wine and some Paul Winter music, with your eyes closed and you will be able to picture yourself out in the jungle. Don't forget to up the heat in the apartment and face the fan your direction.

    OK, who wants what Ron is on, LOL.
