    Default Bulb. A-doribil upwind

    Bulb. basisetum x Bulb. echiolabium 'A-doribil' AM/AOS. I purchased this one 41 days ago. It did have a little spike about 1.5" long. After bringing it home, I repotted it and did a division of the plant. Come to find out that the other plant also went into spike just as I gave it to another RVO member(Cjcorner-Connie) that lives just down the road. Well I know why its named a upwind. If you had a bunch of these in bloom you would need to stay upwind! This one that is fragrant (Stinky) and it's not a good smell. What is really cool, there is another bud just above this bloom. This one stays mainly in the shade, very little sun and I keep it damp. I'm sure the Florida humidity helps. Have Fun, Rich
