    Thanks folks!

    Dale, this is my first flower from this plant/species, so I will report back on longevity. No odor at all that I can detect.

    my is slightly different, In UK is now again cooler, so it opens properly, not like some half dry one before.

    My was opend 9th today we have 13th and it is still open, so if it is a bit cooler and darker flower can last much longer - at least 100h ;-)
