    I love the color and shape of the blooms, Branka - and it has a fragrance, too? Sounds like a perfect combination. Are these hard to find (to add to my collection, I mean)? How difficult is it to grow - does it need very specific conditions?

    I grew mine mounted: cool to hot growing conditions should be given. The leaves are succulent so there is no need to water it each day: I mist/water mine every second day. Water should be reduced after flowering. It blooms once per year - from early spring to early summer: the blooms are not long-lastin, perhaps 7-10 days or so, depending on conditions.... And it smells like cinnamon.

    Looks like it needs a lot of light by the color of the leaves. Is that so?
