Thank you ladies!
ha--I'm catching on that it is white flowers banner week! Cool Green Grin!
I Lovey dubby white flowers!

This one here is exceptionally fragrant. It's got oodles of itty-bitty buds forming right now and I'm really looking forward to their explosion and lovely scent filling the house Smiling it'll be a while yet, though. Meanwhile, I have some paperwhites just coming on to tide me over Hilarious!

Oh Dirt, how right you are! Murraya paniculata has THE most delicious fragrance in the whole wide world. Makes me think I've died and gone to heaven. Beautiful leaves, very glossy and those small white blooms that are so powerfully fragrant. When I saw the banner & then who did it, I wondered how you had one where you live but I see you have it indoors. I miss mine so but it had to stay down south (planted in ground). I might just have to try one indoors here.

Thank you for the wonderful trip down memory lane.

It goes outside for the summer and then back in for the winter--cuz, yeah, otherwise it would die. I have had mine for many years (~15+) this way and it does well. I get a good bloom in late winter/early spring like February, then off/on thru about June. Then it takes a summer break when the nights get hot and blooms again in the fall before I bring it in, then it sulks a bit and then starts over Smiling
I have found it to be a very tolerant plant and it has eventually forgiven me every time that I have accidentally tried to kill it! Hilarious!

They are tough plants. I could keep one outside most of the year, even most of winter. I think I'm going to do it. Thumbs up

Dirt, do you think that plant would grow well here inside all year round, I love fragrant blooms but refrain from having too many inside plants to take care of as we like to go camping during the summer, it's bad enough with all of those Amaryllis but at least you can leave them for a couple of weeks no problem. Shrug!

STUNNING!!! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I need to get some good smelling plants for the inside of the house! That is, if I can get over the fact that I've sworn that I will not have house plants again. Hilarious!

Glad you are all enjoying it, more to come! Gives a 'snowy' wintery feeling I thought. Thumbs up

@mcash70
Well it loves sun --so if you could provide sufficient light I'm sure that it could
Also can be left for a couple weeks with no problem
Mine has demonstrated that it can recover quite well after near fatal water failures of the epic too much and not at all variety--automatic systems work great as long as they are working but one must remember to check that they are working once in a while Rolling my eyes.
People do really cool bonsai things with them and they don't seem to mind the seemingly brutal surgery involved in that transition either Shrug!
Incidentally--I don't fertilize mine and it blooms regularly as I said above, but it is written all over the internet to feed it if you want blooms.
Try it if you can find one!
