12 May, 2014 -- Night view

Started putting out buds about two weeks ago. Can't put it outside until nights reach 50 degrees.
3 days ago, after responding to fertilizer.

Just after dark, it's larger than my fist, starting to uncurl.
Come on, Juanita, you've gotta see this! It's moving! It will be drooping by morning.

Fully open, and sending off such sweet scents. Can't imagine what a whole tropical forest must be like.

Pollen everywhere, and in the jungle, there would be bugs swarming. Amazing, I'm not allergic to this one.
Local spring growth keeps me sneezing, so maybe I should be swinging from a tree somewhere in the jungle?

Don't give up on me. I'm still taking pictures, just needed a kick.
Just got it; thanks, Barb B.
