My Dracaena is flowering!

ed1315September 8, 2013

This plant was in bad shape. I had it for several years and always put it outside on the deck in the summer and it did well. This year I moved to a house and neglected the plant, it was put by a window in a back room and was dried out and dieing. I put it outside on a porch with 1/2 sun and started watering and it flowered for the first time! Just the thing to tell me to take care of my plants!

Stinks don't it?

Be glad you have it outside. It's a pleasant enough smell when diluted but when confined to a room it'll make your eyes water. My girlfriend wanted me to cut the flower off of mine.

That's smashing! Thanks for sharing, too bad computer doesn't have scratch'n'sniff (yet.) So similar to a Sans flower, isn't it? In appearance anyway. Do you mind saying what state you're in?

Too strong of a smell, huh? I've never had the experience of sniffing one, but would love to sometime. Those darn narcissus can be the same way. Smells great outside, but cut and brought in, you might find yourself trying to figure out where "that awful smell" is coming from. LOL!
