    So it does actually have a faint smell to it...I guess I'll wait out the labeled Titans I just got through the mail til blooming and then compare the two.

    My only ping died right after blooming, so in my case, conditions don't matter.

    All you have to do is yell at it every night "YOU WILL FLOWER!", you would be surprised.

    Oh oops, didn't see this. I put my plants outside so I don't know if it's temps or amount of light hours, but feeding them *definitely* helps. Mine didn't bloom til I smeared some cricket guts on them XD.

    It looks like P. 'Titan' to me.

    Here is a plant doing, what I call, "Blooming in desparation" - it is very seriously malnourished -->




    Here is one growing with much better nourishment -->




    Here is a propagule, being grown with very good nutrition -->




    Here is one that is growing in Winter leaf form, it has just had all its older/larger leaves stripped away for propagation -->
