    This plant was one or two fans when I got it sometime over a decade ago. I don't know how many it is now. This plant very easily divides on its own as new fans (basal keikis) are produced on a very thin rhizome like thing. Over time it will divide itself. Somewhere over 40 inflorescences at the moment.

    The 3/16" flowers are fragrant at night, but only after several hours of darkness. They have a smoky smell reminiscent of cloves.

    I've been growing it shady, moist, intermediate.

    Wow, very nice! The tip of the spur is very fat with yours. More and more I compare several examples of so-called A. hildebrandtii and this sp., I don't know how they can be considered different species biologically. They are from the same area and seem to flower at the same time, the flower sizes may be slightly different, but I'm not sure if it is enough to reproductively isolate them.
