The plant's flowers have a strong vanilla scent! They come in various colors, red, pink, white and yellow. The flowers are about the size of your neatly trimmed pinky finger nail. Great plant!

This hybrid is easy growing and blooming one. I have one in terracotta pot, keeping it inside my table size greenhouse. I doub it wouldn't mind if kept in regular room air moisture.
