    Julie, ur a shocker!!! U made me choke on my pizza (for breakfast) with so much laughter...

    Matt, how late? It's dark here from six at the moment so, when I get home from work will it be fragrant?

    Oh and how long do those flowers last?

    Mine have bloomed at all times of the year, and it doesn't matter when the sun sets, the decline in the light triggers the scent regardless. I'm a sound sleeper, so I don't know what time it "shuts off its scent valve", but here in Minnesota it's getting dark around 8-ish, and it's still wooing the moths at 10-11 when I usually head for bed.
    The blooms last at least a month, and I've had them go for up to 3 months when the conditions were good. I have two of them mounted on cork bark.

    Matt, that is a really lovely mounted plant. I love the form and the growth pattern along the mount--very satisfying. Thanks for sharing.
