Anonymous added on January 30, 2014 | Answered

We have an indoor yucca, which has flowered. This flowering seems to be very, very strong smelling more in the evening time than daytime. Is this normal?

Yes, this is common. Many plants have stronger scents in the evening because the types of insects that pollinate them are more likely to come out at dusk and early evening. It is meant to attract them, but humans can enjoy it as well.
