In the last few days the Eucharis in the tropical room have burst into bloom. A few weeks ago the canopy was trimmed and a lot more light can reach the lower plants. I think this is the reason why they are all covered with dozens of flowers. All the plants in the tropical room bloom on mass several times a year, sometimes for no apparent reason at all.
These are some of my favourite flowers in the greenhouse (hence the use in the banner at the top of the page). I always thought Eucharis was simply a foliage plant. However the blooms are all around lovely. The outer portion of the flower is very simple. The inner portion adds a little elegance. This produces an overall very delicate and pleasing look. My only complaint is that they face downward, but this invites you to take a closer look at the plant.
