    Oh I just got one of these too. Though mind only has one but open so far and no lower pettal with white fringe... Strange. They smell lightly sweet. Very nice plant.

    Wow, Gabriela! Beautiful deep violets! I have a Galeopetalum somewhat like this but it's a much smaller plant than yours. I love the zygopetalum types and now I think I need a Bollo - now to find space.....
