    I planted this at 2017. The first bloom was in January 2020, despite the plant's vigorous growth it only had two inflorescences at that time.
    Now, the buds burst out like crazy. There are fifteen of them this time. Very happy to see them.
    Can't wait to see them open. Maybe tomorrow? IMG_20220917_073049.jpg IMG_20220917_073140.jpg IMG_20220917_073154.jpg IMG_20220917_073212.jpg

    WOW Nisa!!!! What a magnificent plant! Since we are not very far from each other distance-wise and live in the same climates, the same thing is happening to my plants. So many new spikes, buds, and very soon blooms. I guess our plants love the extreme humidity. LOL Congratulations.

    This one surely loves rain Greg. I usually place the plant under tree canopy, to protect it from sunburn. Move it a while to a higher place for taking pictures.
    I'll post an update tomorrow

    After three days, nearly all the flowers are open. The first opened flowers looks fully open now. And with that much flowers, I can smell some fragrance now. Can't describe how is it though, I don't have enough vocabularies to do so :D

    This is what I think about the scent. Like the sap in Chrysophyllum cainito (star apple) fruits.
    IOSPE describe the smell as not nice.
    Turn out the flowers last longer than what I thought. This is fourth day. I keep the plant watered during this flowering time.
