    It is a first time bloomer.
    Got this jungle plant almost two years ago and the two newest growths are two feet long.

    Loverly Tom! This one blooms from the rhizome right? Just reminding myself so I can look to see if I have any spikes forming.

    I looked at some old photos of mine. I don't have any spotting like that. I'm jealous!

    OK, so it isn't a mini. Is it fragrant?

    Marni, the flower is fragrant at night. Not sure how to describe it. Well, it is nice but I like the fragrance of B. nodosa or even B. cucullata better.

    Nice one Tom! I've got a little baby one. How much light are you giving it?

    A bit less than B. nodosa, JonP.
