At night it is fragrant - sort of a generic floral/hyacinth smell. Not bad but I'm generally not a huge fan of hyacinth. I suppose it's nice that it overwhelms rotting meat smell of my second C. wendtii flower (sometimes you wait two years and then you get two flowers almost at the same time I guess).

I've added a foliage picture to my previous post for comparison. Both were bought as Cryptocoryne wendtii 'green' though I now know that "green" "bronze" "red" and "brown" are all useless as names because they refer to multiple plants and because the same plant could be each of these colours depending on growing conditions. Instead I call the previous C. wendtii 01 and this 02.
