    Surprised I flowered it this well or it's just that good of a clone.

    Some might not like this species' flower substance (or lack thereof), but I enjoy it. I think it lends a rather ethereal and spectral quality to the blooms. Waxing poetic aside, I have to say, well done!

    I don't have a sense of smell. Severed all my olfactory nerves according to the ct scans at my last neurologist appointment.

    What a bummer!

    It does have a wonderful fragrance and imparts it to its progeny.

    For those of you that have seen Datura species (jimson weed) blooming it is easy to see where this received its name.
