ドラセナトウモロコシ – Corn Plant


30年近く一緒に住んでいる観葉植物の私のドラちゃんに花が咲いた。Dora-chan, my Corn plant (aka Dracaena fragrans) who has lived with me for nearly 30 years bloomed for the first time.

水を上げなかったために、2回も死にかけた経験のあるドラちゃんに初めての花。ビックリして、ちょっと怖かった。花が咲くなんて、聞いたことなかったから。It nearly died twice because I didn’t water it for too long, but it survived and now has bloomed for the first time. I was so surprised, and scared, to see it. I never knew that corn plants bloom.

一週間してもそれほど変化なく、枯れてきたようなので、花の茎を切り落としてあげた。The flowers didn’t changed much in the past week, but just dried a little. So I cut the entire flower stem.

クリスタルみたいに光るボール状の塊、樹液かな。 I saw shining sap like Crystal balls here and there.

ドラちゃんの花、再び見ることができるのでしょうかねぇ。また30年ぐらい待つのでしょうか。I wonder if I could see Dora-chan’s flowers again in the future. Do I need to wait another 30 years to see them?
