I have a Dracaena that is starting to flower. Does this mean that it will die after flowering like some (yucca) tropicals do ?? If so, will removing the flower before it is fully blown save the plant ??
Congragulations, they bloom only under decent conditions. Open the windows! The fragrance is overpowering. After flowering, the tops die and the plant grows side shoots
You may want to look at this discussion, Gail. Someday I hope to smell one of these famous blooms! Congrats!
WOW !! How exciting !
This plant is growing in my workplace...I have been the plant caretaker for a year now. I just e-mailed the previous caretaker to see if it ever bloomed before. hoping whe will come over and check it out. We are a large "one room' building...a bus terminal actually.Floor to ceiling windows everywhere. the plant is basically in the middle of the room. It is winter in northern Michigan and the sun is a rare commodity, thoough we've seen more of it this winter than in many previous winters.
Can't wait for the fragrance.!! I am the bldg opener in the morning so I'm waiting for the morning I come in and there it is...the fragrance !!
