Natural Air Freshener

This is a picture of our blooming Dracenea plant. My sister gave this one to us, and we've had a lot of fun keeping it growing. And unexpected surprise was that it bloomed! The blossoms are very fragarent, and perfume our whole front room. It smells a little like Jasmine.

So far, it's been nice to have a large houseplant. This one takes a lot of water, so we keep a mister bottle nearby, and when we pass, just mist the leaves a bit. It likes a humid environment, which our house is not.

It also makes a handy monkey hang-out (for our white plushy friend) and a great "egg hider" for when toddlers come over. (For some reason, they like finding those plastic easter eggs hidden at the base).

For more info about this plant, check out this web site or your local florist shop or garden shop. I actually don't know where you get them originally, but my sister got it from a auto care place going out of business.
