I have had these plants for roughly 6 years, I love them and the flowers smell incredible, but mine only bloom at night and die off when the sun comes up. I can't cut them or the flower dies faster. I looked around but mine seem to be the only ones that do this, or am I wrong? I love that you have this place to talk about plants. Thank you
