    These are so-o cute! and unusual! flowers instantly remind me about my strange looking Hymenocallis harrisiana, which I got by shipping mistake. They look like sisters with your blooms, don't they? Also is hard to take a good picture - all blurry mess.
    I didn't mean to steal attention, just wanted to share something nice, not troubles only .
    May be I'll get one of these beauties some day too - love fragrant flowers. Congratulatuons!

    Sure, Northeastern Australia. They come from the Araucaria vine forest. I looked it up in Orchidwiz.
