My brother and his family took a vacation in Hawaii a few years back. They sent me a small dormant trunk about the size of an average phallus. The trunk has grown to about 5' feet tall. These elegant flowers come out of the stiff trunk's tips each year. The scent is beyond divine!

Sorry for the innuendoes !
They say 'horticulture is sex.' Guess I proved their point! ;)

The cutting you gave me has several leaves now with more sprouting vigorously. It almost makes me blush to watch it. How long before it will bloom? Next summer maybe?
