Hi all!

Wanted to share this beauty which is currently in bloom.
It's the Colmanara /oncostele Wildcat Ocelot, and it's the second of this type I have.
Its a ridiculously vigorous plant. I got it in spike, which it then dropped and started growing another spike and a new growth at the same time.
A plant that doesn't like waiting it seems.
On the side note, yes it's fragrant - it's a gentle peppery spice and floral fragrance.

Wildcat is a great grex and there are quite a few variations out there and most of them are lovely. Yours is particularly nice.

Thank you! I have also the Wildcat bobcat one but it's been very unruly throwing new growths instead of spikes. But hey it may need to gather some strength before flowering.
