    Default Bulbo. Wilbur Chang

    Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this bud to open for about 8 weeks, it was taking so long I was afraid it would blast on me. Seven inches from tip to tip, the red tongue wags in the breeze. Just opened this morning, completely closed yesterday, no fragrance yet.

    Nice flower. Count yourself lucky on the lack of fragrance ... at least one of the parents is a stinker.

    It's gorgeous, but it DOES look like a little stinker.

    You really have to get your nose close, certainly not enough to stink up the shadehouse. But its dead fish for sure. Gotta love the Bulbos, weather they stink or not! LOL
