    Took the drive down to Cincy today on the chance the judges would like this one as much as I do. Thanks to my new cool growing case, it got four inflorescences with thirteen 2" flowers (+ a bud) on a relatively small plant. Lightly fragrant, with a sort of pleasant medicinal quality to it. Growing on a wood slab with a bit of moss, misted to saturation daily.
