Random plant event: Ledebouria socialis flowers

I bought a Ledebouria socialislast April, and divided it into three plants, and then it did nothing all summer. Recently, all three divisions have been producing new bulbs, but nothing's blooming, and nothing seems likely to, either. How much do I mind? Ennh. Not that much. It's fine. But still, I'm glad that some of them bloomed at work, so I could see what that's like.

If there's a scent to the flowers, it's really subtle; the plants in question are near a fan so it's hard to be sure that there's nothing, but it's not anything that's going to knock you on your back or anything.

Also, some of the plants have flowered, and others didn't, even though they're all in more or less the same conditions and getting more or less the same care. Not clear what that means, but I'm guessing it must be an age / size thing.
