    Default pteroceras unguiculatum, sea of flowers...

    hi folks,

    2 of my plants were showing off this morning, heavy fragrance like coconut lotion at the opening stage, but short lived only.
    this species produces plenty of buds and they all burst, after 2 months or so it just decides thats it!

    enjoy,

    You are becoming quite a pro with your photos, Ron!
    (no need to stand next to the plant in your lingerie anymore )

    Those blooms are beautiful, a little Phal-like.
