    Default ID Please

    Cheers,

    I've this one for quite a while now... its always in bud too bad i've never really
    had the chance to see the flowers as i've never seen it open... im starting to
    think that the flowers on this one doesnt really open or that the flowers dont
    last very long to be noticed. Anyways this morning while doing my morning
    walk i've finally seen it open and i was very excited so i immediately grabbed
    for the camera to take a photo of it.

    It seems that I am correct in my assumption that the bloom doesn't last long
    as a few hours after i snapped the photo the flower is starting to close. Also
    its quite fragrant but more of the stinky side.... if I have to describe it, it smells
    like old socks.

    I hope somebody here could ID the plant.

    Very beautiful and unique! Do you know if it is available from any growers/sellers in the U.S.?

    Fudge! Just when I was thinking about getting one. I love the vining habit. Will just have to look at your pics. Thanks for sharing, cool one!

    Thanks for the ID Jim, really appreciate it, btw as a followup -- may i ask where in the
    country can this be found?

    Thanks Ron for the culture tip, well I dont have the highland condition it requires but it
    seems to have liked it here, it even survived the hot summer. I keep it shaded and
    humid and very moist... actually i was worried with the media its in..pure sphagnum, but
    I decided not to repot until i see something that may show signs of problems and it
    didnt gave me any.

    Thanks a lot for viewing guys, I just got lucky with finding this.
