    Great shot of a lovely bloom, even more impressive given the size of the flower. How many flowers are there right now? I thought I saw 3 or 4 open already in the second photo.

    Do you detect a smell? I was told that it smells , but I eventually traded mine after it never bloomed.

    I've never detected a scent on mine but..........

    Your petals are much more recurved than those on mine ... I like that look better. Maybe I'll show mine this pic to give it some inspiration.

    Btw, unless those silly taxonomists have changed its name back to Epi., believe it's now known as Dinema polybulbon

    LOL I have given up with the name changes thanks for the reminder though I did know that but never changed my tag

    Epi..to Enc to Dinema

    It does have a sweet fragrance.

    At one time I grew this in a small pot of gravel...I only moved it to the cork a couple of years ago and it seems to like it there

    Bruce having hanging on a chain link fence just above eye level helps
