The Brahma Kamal is a rare mythological plant that has deep roots in Hinduism. Named after the God of Creation – Brahma, this flower is said to bring immense luck and prosperity to the person who watches it bloom. Vedas talk about the flower blooming once every 14 years but in actuality, it is quite common for it to bloom once every couple of years.
The Brahma Kamal, the ‘Kamal’ here being ‘lotus’ is in fact not a lotus. It is a cactus and should be cared for like one. Never overwater it as waterlogging can lead to its sudden death. The pure white, star-like flowers take more than two hours to completely bloom, and that too happens after nightfall.
Brahma Kamal should be grown under caring hands. Water it moderately in well-drained soil. Allow filtered sun most of the time and full sun occasionally. With these tips, you can grow your very own Brahma Kamal for a more spiritual home.
