    First flowering of a plant which joined my collection from its native Venezuela just 3 months ago ; so no credit to me. Four flowers, six inches across. Scent and colour (?) still developing, but we are having a warm spell, and I am still working on my new shading system , so chances are the greenhouse will get too hot and the flowers go over quickly - there cannot be much by way of roots to support the plant yet. Hence, grab the pic whilst I can. But four flowers in these circumstances - fingers crossed, looks good .

    Super buy! You do have to take some credit though. Buds wouldn't have been there when you got it.
