I wish...





...that I could blog-share the scent of this desktop plant with you. As its somewhat insignificant flower opens, its scent becomes more pronounced. Sweet but not sickly, a little like jasmine, the room fills with a subtle perfume in the evening. Lovely.

I'd scratch and sniff the monitor but my OH wouldn't be amused...

I've never seen one flower before so that is something ..for the scent I'll just have to rely on your description :0)

The trouble with m-in-law's tongues is that they just keep expanding... I agree about the flowers, though.

M-In-laws tongues can't increase as fast as Spider plants , surely ?
Never smelt one , it's not a plant that invites close encounters , really .

Sounds like the kind of thing I love and someone else who lives in this house would hate and say, 'I'll have to put that one outside - the smell gives me a headache'. Sigh.

I've had one of those plants for years, didn't even know they were supposed to flower. I am going to give mine a good talking to.

I've never had one of these, but am very tempted now.
I love the in-built knowledge of all plants. Give them a little of what they need, and they're away. (My cold propagator's full at the moment, so I'm checking on my 'babies' 20 times a day!)

Hmm, sounds (and looks) lovely. I might have to buy one now. I understand Sansevieria's are hardy plants, which is what they have to be if they want to survive in my house.
