I would always see the spent flower in the morning. Finally at night.... Smell was not the best for me.was not as sweet as it was said..

Flower buds early evening..

Late night...

next day morning...

I do love the silky texture of the spent flower...

Wow! beautiful! I remember staying up all night to take pictures of the first few blooms on mine. Then the plant was just a couple of feet tall and had few branches.
Now it is a huge mass of tangled stems!
What do you do to encourage blooms? Mine will bloom sporadically in early spring or late fall, but not a lot of blooms comapred to the size of the plant. I wonder why?
I feed it with high P fertilizer and have it root bound in a large 14" pot.
Any suggestions please?

Thanks Malini.

Can you please email me your address.. I hope to send you and Sushmita, plants in the next week or two.

I don't know any special fertilizer, anything in handy!!!
I see that you have J. arabian nights.. is it big to spare cuttings?
