    First bloom for this one, so it's a bit sparse. Cute little thing, growing on a 5" stick, I/W, bright light. Smells strongly like baby powder.

    That's great, Stephen! I love the pattern of bars on the flowers. Nice bonus that it's fragrant, too. How much water do you give this one?

    I keep it fairly moist - it never dries out completely. Sometimes, being mounted, that means twice a day, especially since it seems to like really bright light and I've got it hanging right under the bulbs.

    Thanks for the info! Definitely looks like it's worth the care, it's a real charmer.
