Mitriostigma axillare

I had this plant briefly but it was sent to me infested with scales and it died within three months without ever blooming. I'm thinking of ordering it again, but since I don't know if it's really worth it I was wondering if anyone could share their experience with it.

It has beautiful foliage and it's rarely out of bloom, I mean that. Does fantastic in the shade where many plants sulk. However, scent-wise, I was left disappointed as it's very faint for me. Sometimes I can't even smell it and it's a strange smell too.

Be aware that to some people, it smells like narcissus and skunk. LOL--guess I'm in the minority, though. To some it smells wonderful.
