I went on vaca for three weeks. Watered all the house plants before I left and closed all the blinds. It was during July. Upon return one of the huge Dracaena fragrans plant over 10 years old had the nerve to flower when I was away. I don't have a clue how the bud was set, pollinated, temps or what any of the required conditions are for flowering ?
The fragrance after awhile had overwhelmed their welcome. A few days later the fragrance hit everyones olfactory so strong it could knock over a elephant. The poor plant had to be excumunicated from the house.
I never had one Dracaena plant flower in over 30 years . The one and only time I've seen one flower and it's never flowered since. I had no idea they even flowered at all. Very little info is on the flowers because the plant is one of the most popular houseplants and bred for the foliage. So where did the flowers come from?
Does anyone have any info on how dracaena is pollinated or set flower
buds? I am at a loss how it was pollinated in the house, mmmm maybe it was a mystery. I am very curious if any one has has similar plants that have flowered and how ? Just curious!
