    It is a cute bloom, but I think I would get tired of the way the plant looks when not in bloom. lol. I suppose the fragrance being so strong helps it to get pollinated before it fades. Thanks for sharing it, Nora!

    Cheers,

    It may be short lived but it will bloom multiple times a year. It blooms 9 days after secondary to a drop in temp, as will happen during a summer thunderstorm.

    Did you see this one?

    I used to live in the subtropics in North Queensland (that's in Oz for you foreigners) where you could happily grow this one outdoors. You simply tied it to a tree and let nature take it's course. Every time it rained or the temp. took a drop, away it would go and flower within a few days.
    It is a big straggly plant when grown in a climate it likes.
