    The flowers smell like crayon.
    This little one is mounted on a piece of tree-fern but the mother plant is in basket with tree-fern stick mix.
    It is an intermedia grower. It likes medium light/bright shade, "slightly" dry-out between waterings, good air movement and a light winter rest after the leaves start to turn yellow. increase watering when you see flower buds in spring.
