    Lovely species, I think this one may difficult to get established when smaller, but once it is, given proper conditions and not messing with its roots, it becomes an easy-growing reliable bloomer. Night fragrant, I bring this in at night for the wonderful Vick's VapoRub fragrance. Grown in a slotted clay pot in a medium bark/spongerock mix, I keep it up high in the greenhouse for maximum light and intermediate to warm conditions. It's peculiarity is its neat, sort-of terete knife-blade shaped leaves, flat and fleshy. A new growth is shown top center, about 6" tall now. 16" leafspan, six 2.5" flowers this year.
