I posted this over in the identify this plant forum, and was told it was most likely a Dietes. Upon further looking, it's very different from what I see online. The flower is a single. There is a small dark purple spot inside of 4 of the 5 petals towards the throat. It's got a very strong fragrance that reminds me of clean soap.

It's not blooming now (shock) so I can't get a picture of the bloom. Anyone have any idea what I've got here? I want to know how to propagate it and when as well.
