    Nelson, that's the most spectacular Bulbo I've ever seen - and you lighting dramatically captures its beauty!

    It's like a praying angel, reaching up to heaven!

    I agree, that is quite something... and your photography has captured it's beauty!

    Very interesting about how it is non-resupinate.. part of the intrigue in the flower.

    Is it "fragrant"?

    Default Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.

    Yes Diane, it opened just a bit more.
    bench, no stink, so far.

    I didn't wait for the plant to open some more, Piper, because I wanted to take the photo with the "arms to heaven" pose.
