    Lovely, elegant flower! Tried growing one of these years ago without success. Later discovered that it would likely have gotten too big for me anyway so have not tried again.

    Thank you all. I'm glad you all like this one as much as I do .

    Good question. Would be difficult for me to check out since there is also a window, so even if I turn the lights off during the day it won't be totally dark. I could try earlier in the evening and see what happens. I would speculate that the light is the main trigger since the fragrance really pumps out when it gets dark and it is dark outside before the lights go out.
