    Ah the joys of flava...

    So, with all the blooms I have coming up I am needing to store some of them for use on later blooms. One of these is the blooms off my flava rubricorpora... Anyone wanna guess how my fridge smells?? LOL

    And you would know what that smells like how, Bianchi?


    S. flava is an acquired taste. I don't find it particularly horrible smelling; it's more of a musky odor. Like a ferret that's been peed on.

    Well, Clint, since you put it that way... I would say that is definitely an "acquired taste."

    I worry for anyone who has acquired a taste for that...

    Lmao. It's one of those smells that smells bad, but you want to smell more of it for some reason lmao. Like.....gasoline or certain mushrooms or some cheese. I don't mean like huff it (because that's stupid), but I just like the smell of a gas station lmao.


    I better shut up. I'm making myself look weird lmao. S. flava may have smelly flowers, but it more than makes up for it as a plant. It's got such size, a huge operculum, a nice developed peristome, is a fast grower, has a variety of color forms, and is great for hybridizing. S. flava x oreophila or the reciprocal is especially nice since they are similar to begin with. Using a more ornate form of S. oreophila like 'Sand Mountain' or particularly 'Don Schnell' and a plant like S. flava var rubricorpa or var. atropurpurea would make one awesome plant!
