    Beautiful bloom, not sure I would like the smell of cockroaches, but then I don't smell much of anything.

    Beautiful Zain! Not sure what a cockroach smells like but don't think I want to. I'm more afraid of them than a snake!

    They are pretty common in Malaysia household especially in the kitchen nook and the worst when you smashed it ...

    You are considered very lucky Jack, as some Bulbo's they emitted very strong like rotten meat, but the above still much better.
