Journal November 8, 2013 Indoor gardening - tropical plants

The plant shown above is a Tabernaemontana divaricata, also known as a Crepe Jasmine, Pinwheel Flower, East Indian Rosebay and Paper Gardenia, and those are only some of the names I know of.

When I looked at the flower bud this morning, it did not look anywhere near like it was ready to open, however, by lunch it had burst into bloom.  I am really sorry that I did not set up the time lapse camera, as this would probably make an excellent subject.  Well, next time for sure.

The flower has very little scent during the day, however the scent is suppose to increase at night. Time will tell....
