Bought a plant thru EBay, and it's flowered once. The flowers were wonderfully fragrant and lasted for weeks and weeks. The test will be if I can get it to ever flower again!

I bought this plant on a clearance shelf for $10 in Feb. 2004. It put out a spike in March, wow what a bargain. Growing by a window with flourescent light from above.
