    This is my only Tuberolabium but I think I'm hooked. This is a FBS. The blooms are only about 5mm wide but I do not know if the bloom size will increase as the plant ages (IOSPE says bloom size is 1/2 inch). Fragrance is like coconut sunscreen much like Max. tenuifolia.
    Grown bright, intermediate, daily summer water. Mid-day temps often exceed 90 F. but it seems happy.

    I really enjoy these tuberlabiums! Nice one. You might like the others as well, each with its own ditinctive fragrance and colouration. Easy to grow, especially mounted. Enjoy!
