    Ohh Em Gee.
    I don't know whether to be terrified or thrilled - so I choose both! Can you tell us how you cultivate this one, please? How much sun, etc?

    Hi Paul,i was lucky and was given an unrooted section of the plant by Stephen Morley (of eden black fame ) last September,i mixed peat ,perlite and hort sand in equal amounts got it damp and stuck the section in it,it did nothing but root and not really start growing until this spring.Then very quickly grew that offset (if that's the correct term) and the flower developed on the new growth.i hardly watered it in the winter and water it a couple of times a week at the moment .I also every couple of weeks fertilize with an orchid fert but have recently switched to seaweed extract,it grows on a south facing windowsill so gets a good amount of afternoon sun,glad you like it i think its a real beauty

    It looks like a starfish with Megan Fox lips.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly
