|New Rajni Gandha Flower Stem|
With the rains there are many flowering plants that get a boost in growth and one of the most fragrant plants is the Rajni Gandha. The new stem grows as a hard, tall shoot among the green leaves.

I am lucky to have this Rajni Gandha plant that flowers without much care as I have heard people purchase this plant and wait for years without any flowers.So I guess mine has strong genes of flowering!
The plant grows with rhizomes of the mother plant and one can see different plants grow from the side of the original plant. Remove carefully the small saplings and plant in other containers to get a border of fragrant flowers. The flowering season in particular depends upon the plant as mine grows from summer to rainy season, and this is similar to all flowering bulbs and rhizome plants. But sometimes I also get flowers in winter or early spring, so maybe I am lucky to not depend upon the season for seeing flowers of the Rajni gandha.
I have seen that Rajni Gandha plants are available in many varieties. I have the single stem variety. There are other plants that give thick flowers and double or triple layered flowers which are more costlier.
Tips- One of the most important tip which I would like to share is that if the plant is flowering take care to keep the stem intact or tie it as this grows very tall and also has to bear the weight of the flowers. I have kept my plant near the garden fence which lends it support but still the flowering shoot does grow very tall as you can see in the photograph of Rajni Gandha that I have posted here. The plant looks very elegant with the flower shoot and as this moves with the wind we get a dose of fresh heavenly fragrance that energizes all your senses!
All the Best from Rizwana!
