Question: I couldn’t figure out where the sweet smell was coming from, and now I have found a flower spike on my dracaena. Is that unusual?

Answer: For many of the different types, no, it’s fairly common. Corn plants will do it once or twice a year once they’re mature, and Dracaena fragrans actually gets its species name from its fragrant flowers. In tightly closed buildings the flowers can almost be too sweet. If they begin to bother you, just cut them off.
