Apparently it blooms when it pleases I've had it Bloom on different occasions but it seems It's usually close to some special occasion like a moon or a holiday it would be nice if it only bloomed on the moon LOL. It seems to bloom 3 or 4 times a year give or take ...3 is about average.
I've been reading about this plant. Once met a native man at a powwow who is telling me about the umbilical cord that runs through the length of the flower and the spiritual connection that it had, it was really fascinating to speak to him and I wish I could have remembered everything he said. It definitely has hermaphrodite qualities. It starts looking in a phallic way
changing overnight into this receptive kind of chalice quality, and the inner parts are very much looking like the end of a fallopian tube, then in the morning it's spent. I was looking at how it's used in making the Ayahuasca drink, did not know this, and it definitely helps with sleep, that night it bloomed I had it in the house and watched it slowly open into a great blossom, it was fabulous, later I took it to the nightstand and slept with the fragrance intoxicating me all night. I've , been under some stress and completely forgot to pay attention to any dreaming. Did sleep well though !!
I'll keep y'all posted when it blooms.
Here it is in fast motion...
