Random plant event: Ceropegia woodii


This is not the first time I've posted a picture of a Ceropegia woodii flower, but this is a much better photo than the other was. This is also a bit special in that it's my own personal plant blooming, not just one at work.

Despite the rumors that the flowers smell like rotting meat, I haven't been able to detect any smell from this flower. Possibly I was trying at the wrong time of day, though.

I love it. Such an odd plant. It's always great when you've brought something to flower yourself. *Gardening Confidence Boost*

I have never smelt nastiness from the flowers. I assume this is an assumption from other members of the family.

I like the taste of the flowers, as well.
