    Grown intermediate, bright, moist. The whole plant is 9 cm tall and the blooms are 1.2 cm. At close range it has a slight fragrance of baby powder.

    Thanks, Alexey. That's really the only reason I posted it. I think it has some of the best markings that I have seen.

    I've only had this since April so it is still quite small. I have a small piece of T. smithii (thanks Chad), and a huge plant of T. brachiata that is taking over the greenhouse. Want any T. brachiata?

    Good blooming! I had one of these, but I lost it in a freeze when the heater stopped working :mad: I've always liked this genus.

    Bummer. You are about 2 years too late. I gave some away but hauled about 10 feet of it to the compost heap. It was literally taking over one end of the greenhouse. The pieces I kept are growing quickly.

    Edub9, I don't remember where you live.

    It's the right time of year for spikes on it so I hope it is. I need to go look at mine and see if I have any showing yet.

    I am in Naples Florida zone 10b, 10 feet of it went to the compost heap! So very sad.
