I have had this one for about 8 years. Flowers every year and it has the most delicious, strong fragrance that is lemony, sweet and a little spicy. The plant hangs in south facing window, and likes to dry out completely between watering. The leaves are so thick and rigid they seem like made out of wood. The flowers are very hairy and wild looking. It is a little different than the pictures of digbyana I see in books.
Outstanding Good job blooming it. How old is the plant?
I love that!
Love it ! mine did not bloom this time I re potted it last year .. basket is a good idea, thanks for posting yours . Gin
Nice looking plant and wonderful white bloom Ania.
I've always loved the heavily fringed lip on this one. Too bad the lip doesn't carry through in the hybrids.
Nicely grown, Ania!
simply Gaugh-geous! I have a couple of plants that look resemble yours(similar leads, leaves and roots) but names don't match. How often do you water/fertilize and how much humidity do you have to supply to keep it happy?
