Well, I only noticed this guy growing a bud last week. When I watered the mini green house earlier today, I thought the bud had a while to go but my plant had different plans... I peaked in and boom, there's a cute little white bloom!





Ironically, I have two of these which are siblings and were roughly the same size a year ago. This one has barely grown except for roots, the other is three times this ones size with a new growth coming out of the base and two spikes it's had forever. Who'd have though the runt would be the first to bloom?

Very pretty! I love the contrast of the soft green and the white and the shimmering of the water droplets on it.

Thank you! It is a lovely little flower. The picture was taken within a few hours of it popping open. And itt opened very quickly - I misted everyone down around five and it was still a green bud and was open by 9pm. Now that it has matured a bit, it is becoming a little more solid white and my, my it smells pretty good right now. I hope it gets stronger tonight!

It's sibling looks like it's going to bloom too. I had to repot it today though as I couldn't get the ants to stop trying to nest in it (why they picked a 2'' pot, I'll never know). Hopefully that doesn't cause it to abort.
