    I don't know what to say. That is totally bizzaro. The flowers look like they're made from folded paper. Very cool.

    I was thinking they look like an origami swan also. I love the translucent "wings"!

    Very nice. I continue to be envious.

    So are those blooms like half the size of the plant, or what? You don't happen to have a full-plant pic around by chance?

    Also, are they wintergreen fresh? From how many feet away do they smell?

    Feel free to ignore my persistent questioning, I'm just really curious, and really really wish I could get mine to bloom.

    Sue, here is what you asked for ! The bucket is a little over 2 inches from the top to the bottom . the plant is 14 inches from the tip of the leaf to the base of the bulb , light, according to my meter is a hair over 200fc at the top of the plant . humidity approx. 60% to 70% in the green house , rain or RO. water MSU. Fert. half strength . moist . Have some tip burn on the leaf before the 2nd layer of plastic was added to the roof . I have decided to hunt up more of them, they tickle me Will do Louis . Gin
