Corn Plant Blooming

In the corner sits a very old Corn (Dracaena) plant, inherited from my grandmother.  For years it has just sat there looking pretty removing toxins from the air with its green leaves.  A few weeks ago one of the stems started to look different and then buds started to form.

Then one night a strong almost sickly sweet odor filled the air.  The next morning I looked and the buds had opened with a lot of pretty little white flowers.  The smell is stronger at night when more of the blooms seem to be open.

This is the first time this has happened.  I’ve read online that it can be rare for them to bloom like this indoors.  I’m hoping that it blooms again.

Have you ever had a plant surprise you by blooming?
