    Yes it is fragrant it's very pleasant. The plant isn't very large the pbulbs are maybe 6" - 8" the leaves are about the same length. I'll post a plant pic tomorrow.

    It looked like one of those really big ones just from the flowers. Very nice.

    I'm hoping that it will eventually become more pendant. It's interesting that almost all the root are on the mount and almost no new roots form near the new growth.
