    That's a great job of growing and blooming. Looks like something that would be used for an advertisement for an florist. Superb.

    WOW is right--that's amazing, Steve. Beautiful plant and blooms. The one I've got is just the plain yellow, nothing near as stunning as yours, here. Great work!

    The plant is in the same bark as i got it(about 18 months ago) , it is 1 of the Onc's that genuinely like to grow in intermediate conditions.No cool/rest period.
    I haven,t been in the house @ the right time to catch the scent , early morning wiith the sun on it .It is very powerful if you catch it @ the right time.
    Very very compact grower , there is still plenty of room in the 4" pot & there is @ least 20 PB,s.
    When i water/fert this plant i actually leave the water/fert in the saucer & it seems to like having it,s feet this wet.Won,t bother with s/h because i don,t see how it could perform any better !

    hmm. i thought the twinkle 'fragrance fantasy' clone was white with yellow?
    i do know there is a twinkle 'red fantasy' though...

    i have a 'fragrance fantasy' that i think is mislabelled, since it's flowers look *exactly* like ornithorhynchum, though it's leaves and growth habit were different than the ornithorhynchum i had (and have since killed. oops).

    thoughts?

    This is the same plant last year.

    As you can see it,s yellow & white.
    This was bought in spike last year so my culture has changed the colour.
