Snake Plant & Cordyline Plants Are Flowering

On Sunday, a friend sent the following photos from her garden.

So nice to see her snake plant blooming.
Snake plant has such pretty flowers.
Her Cordyline Red Sister plants are also flowering.
The flowers are so pretty.
They do look like orchid flowers.
Once upon a time, I too had this plant in my garden but no more.
Found this truck model next to the lobby of the hotel we were staying in when we were in Penang.
And these portraits on the wall at the same place.
These must be some famous celebrities.


It is better to be slow-tempered than famous;
it is better to have self-control than to control an army.
(Proverbs 16:32, The Living Bible-TLB)

  8. Nancy, I never saw sanseviera flourish and had one for many years. I will tell you about something I found on Google about that plant and its names here:
    Mother-in-law's tongue 😝 fox tail 🦊 Saint George's sword ⚔ tiger's tail πŸ… Saint George's rod 🀺 are some of the names by which you can find this plant.
    You know her from grandma's house, from the sidewalk, from memories, the room, childhood. These places have treasured this beautiful plant for generations.
    Against envy, for good luck, some even use it as an amulet!

    1. Thank you, Norma. Yes we also know this plant as mother-in-law's tongue. If the plant is left fighting for space in a pot, it will usually flower. Mine are all spaced out in different pots and they have plenty of room to grow, so it not easy for me to see mine flower.

  9. Thank you Nancy. I have seen both these plants but I have never seen their flowers. The flowers are pretty. Do the plants need to be over one year old to flower?

    1. According to the internet, the plants will usually flower when it is limited in growing space.

    1. I read that they need sunlight and limited growth space to force them to bloom.

  17. Thank you Nancy for sharing the beautiful plants. May I know what fertiliser you put into it. How to make the snake plant blooms? My snake plant has been with me for more than 7 years but it has never bloomed flowers before. Appreciate you sharing and thank you.

    1. Thank you, Shirley. I am sorry, the photos shown are from my friends and the plants are from her garden. My snake plants also never bloomed before. According to google, the plants need sunlight, less water, and limited growing space to force them to flower. I seldom fertilize my snake plant. I used to separate the babies from the mother plant, so now I won't and will let them grow and compete with each other and wait for the flowers. Lol!

  20. Our indoor snake plant bloomed one year, which I understand is unusual when grown inside. The flowers produced a sticky sap.
