    Nice. Mine just started popping up a few days ago.

    Am I the only one who thinks this flower smells exactly like elephants?

    The flies were lined up outside my greenhouse the morning this thing bloomed. I've never seen a plant so adept at attracting its pollinator.

    Man, yours is way bigger than mine.

    What soil mixture do you use?

    It could be corm size / Mine are 3 years old

    I use a mix of
    Compost
    Manure
    Horse Poop
    Peat and/or Potting Soil
    Bone Meal / Dry crushed bones work just as good
    &
    Bark for drainage

    To bad they don't last longer than a day

    That compost and the smell of the flower must be a charming combo.
