Acidanthera (Acidanthera murieliae (Peacock orchid))

I got the corms as a souvenir in Germany about 15 years ago. It is very fragrant and fall-blooming. Multiplies very fast.

what a beautiful plant, it sounds fantastic ~ fragrant too?
im putting this on my wish list ~ is it difficult to grow?

Strongly fragrant. It actually is a little tricky to grow. The main thing is sun and the soil should be kept moist while it is growing. It is good for late summer flowers. In the UK, you will probably have to move it to a frost free area or dig and replant in the spring.
