    Zain - that is such a darling little flower - I love it!

    So, my question is, is the strong fragrance strong enough to overpower the durian?

    I like these Zain and the fragrance factor certainly enhances the attractiveness of this plant. Beauty as they say is fleeting...............though were it flees to I have no idea. AL

    Well, I know I haven't caught any - don't look my way. Really. You don't want to look my way.

    Very pretty, Zainal. I don't think I have seen this before. Is the flowering seasonal?

    It's seasonal 4 to 7 times a year in response to temperature drop maybe similar like pigeon orchid (crumenatum) these is 3 times it's blooms for this year.Thanks Yew.

    Zain, I'm aware of it only by reputation. I tend to be openminded to new foods, but I'm not sure about the durian...I've heard too many negatives about it, I'm ashamed to say.

    Cute lil flowers -- too bad they are so short lived.

    Ah, durian -- is that the one of which it is said "Tastes like heaven, smells like hell"?
