    Very nice! Congratulations I love these and I have never seen a purple one before.. Very cool!
    It starts 'scenting' after a few days and its a lovely scent of sweet citrus , milder than a Bellina, I have 2 of these that have been flowering non stop since end may ( & putting out new leaves)
    I have read that they are 'prone to' flowering 'to death' ?
    I'll be keeping an eye out on mine as they have both grown new spikes -one now has 3 other 4 and none of the spikes have finished blooming either..Not that I am complaining !!! It's wonderful!

    Thanks everyone, I am having a lovely time at my parents the dog is behaving perfectly, so far LOL he has been poorly so I had to starve him for 24 hours I felt so cruel but the little man seems to be on the mend now and gobbled his chicken and rice last night, my parents are home tomorrow lunch time so I will be going home and able to give my little haerella a sniff myself.

    I dont know an awful lot about the plant other than mine is about 4 inches tall and is growing well in intermediate conditions about 3 and a half ft away from a metal halide light, its grown two new leaves new roots and now has two inflourescences one with 2 buds and one with one bud i think it likes reasonably high humidity but mine stays around 60% humidity was my main concern with this plant.

    Thanks Nen sounds like yours are thriving, well done! I hope to get this little one to try and perform as well as yours.
