A rare bloom

A rare bloom

I never knew that Lucky Bamboo plant blooms so heavily, beautifully and with so much sweet fragrance. Observed that the flowers bloom in the evening and starts spreading the fragrance through out the night and the flowers collapses before dawn. The flowers stay for long. 3-4 days.

After many years, the plant bloomed for the first time. Years back I bought it as a indoor plant from a local fair and later I planted it in the soil in front of my building. It grew well and became bushy. Week back I found something like buds but I ignored since no flower was noticed as it was blooming in the night, I missed the flowers for 2-3 day but later one evening the strong fragrance took me near to the flowers and it was discovered with great surprise. It’s a wonderful gift of nature.

Day time
Night Time bloom
kept a branch in my drawing room, which bloomed before evening today at about 4-30PM

    Wonderful indeed. Actually miracles of Nature are at every step, but we rarely see them.
