    Even though I try to stick with mini's (considering the lack of space in my apt) I keep toying with getting this one. I've always loved the flowers!

    Is it fragrant, Di?

    Strange, mine has a definite fragrance... not floral, but sort of herbish.

    The more I look at it the more I like it. I've added it to my wish list now.

    huh, well, whaddya know... I've checked mine several times, first thing in the morning, middle of the night, midafternoon, lunch time, etc... Never even a hint of a scent. Maybe it didn't want to overwhelm me this time with pretty flowers and a scent...

    Do you mean at the time I smelled it or do I grow it in the sun?

    Let me clarify: First off, I only recently bought mine, at the spring SWROGA as a matter of fact, and it was in bud at the time, so I can't really take credit for the blooms. Second, I grow mine not in direct sunlight, but it does get a fair amount. I don't think I ever tried smelling it in direct sun, maybe I will tomorrow...

    Well...I like that FAR better than any Cym I've ever seen. What medium do you have yours growing in Diane? Do you water like cyms?
