Thank you TT, Lincs, and PP for commenting. :-) I think this one is really interesting. No smell, though the jasmine tried to trick me when I was taking this. Nice flowers when you get close, and such a long cane, like a foxtail lily. Fun to have as a houseplant though it does demand its space! :-)
