    I have had this plant for 15 yrs and never has it ever had any flowers in it. Two weeks ago I noticed something new growing in it. It is about 18 in. tall now and has white flowers , there are small amounts of liquid under each bloom. It is very sweet smelling and the blooms close at night. Can some one help me identify this flower? Pat

    Not 100% sure since the leaves aren't too clear but it may be Sansevieria trifasciata, Snake Plant or Mother-In-Law's Tongue.

    Thanks for your help

    Thanks for your help. I looked up the names that you gave me and it is the mother-in law's tongue. I was just amazed that it had never bloomed before. I was given this plant in 1990 when my Father-in-law passed away. Thanks again for you help. Pat
