    Beautiful.
    For me, it looks like a Phal. Samera.

    Thank you all

    Hi Eric. I've got the same thought as you. I asked the Gartner, and he said it is a sumatra. But what strikes me is, it has the same fragrance as a Bellina. I've two sumatra and my other sumatra do not have the bellina fragrance.

    You're right, fragrances are really different. If it smells like bellina, I think with you that it is a Samera.
    In addition, the shape and the color pattern are not typical of a sumatra type.

    And I envy you the multiple blooms - I can't get my p. violacea to give me more than one bloom at a time, and sometimes there's even a few weeks between those.
