    Great growing.
    Thank you Jonada!
    I think it is great that your plant bloomed with only 5 or 6 bulbs. My plant has about 40 (I should count tomorrow) but never bloomed before. Actually, it was a blooming size plant when I bought it. I have almost given up on it. I thought I was doing something wrong.... Anyway, now I am happy and think that my long waiting is rewarded!

    Yes it is!
    By the way, it looks like my "theory" is right. The plant does not smell now even if you stay close to it. You will detect the "aroma" only if you directly smell the flower.
    I think I should explore it and write my results down... create a "smell chart" or a "smelly chart"

    I know mine had quite the scent if you were withing a foot or 2. Outside of that range it was harmless. I wouldn't have cared if it were much smellier, I love the bloom and it is so huge.

    Well, here is the second flower.
    Unfortunately, pollen was stolen by flies too early this time.

    Sure it did!! I am glad I keep it far from my house. The aroma was really horrible!! I forgot about plant, I was looking for a dead raccoon or something bigger when I smelled it.
