    was it a seedling when you got it?
    looks a lot like the sesquipedale [if i spelled it right]. I have an A eburneum on my windowsill. seedling - seems to grow slowly

    I agonized over Christmas as I have wanted a Sesquipedale since I began collecting these things. I hear your variety blooms twice a year...lucky you! I'm like jealous right now and drooling all over the monitor!! And you grew this that long...great job!

    Thanks every one!
    Hi Stepix,It was a seedling without tag when I got it. It do really grow slowly. I guess it is that hybrid because its spur is lifting instead of dropping down though it is so long.

    Hi Margo,I think I am able to track and get it even if it was in US just by following its fragrance at night! But I will lost the target in day time for it being smellless at that time!LOL
