    It's a shame this one is so pretty and smells like bug farts. But it blooming in the greenhouse now means that Christmas is not far away!!

    It's beautiful!! Mine still has a ways to go before blooming...it's usually a little later than most I see.

    Funny about the bug farts...I think it smells like mushrooms. Kind of earthy...not unpleasant (by bulbo standards) but certainly not a good fragrance.

    Really impressive!
    The big flowers in comparison to the plant size.
    The huge petals. The healthy looking plant with 2 inflorescence.
    Good job.

    Perhaps the scent is only detectable when one is near the flower.

    That may be. I'm over 800 miles away and I can't smell it at all.
