Will Assist You in:
Finding your focus and sticking with it. Tuberose supports those who are finding it hard to stick with their path by showing creative ways to enjoy the everyday and it also assists those looking to inspire desire and passion ~ creative, romantic and sexual.
Language of Flowers Oracle:
Temptation for something rather dangerous but still pleasurable may be coming your way. You are warned to proceed carefully and be sure you are in possession of all the facts. There is a chance of deception.
Focus is required at present, don't drift off into daydreams and remember to stay true to your original desires and plans.
Creative projects have a greater scope for success at present and the next steps perhaps only thought out at this stage, should be actioned at this time.
The generosity shown now will have great benefit later. Conversely, if you accept the gifts of others, be aware that there may be strings attached which will pull on you later.
Tuberose has a beautiful entwined history with seduction, love and even death. In India it is a flower of Wedding celebration, used to ensure amorous feelings between the newlyweds. In France woman are warned not to wear it's perfume or experience it's fragrance after nightfall in case they fall under it's spell and become over amorous with any man who crosses their path.
A very popular funeral flower with the English Victorians, it came to actually symbolise death itself for a while and the superstition arose that one should never sit in a room alone with one for death would surely find you.
A perhaps more aligned to the real Language of Tuberose tradition is the giving of a single blossom to another to indicate your undying passion.
Tuberose are native to Mexico and so do very well in similar climates. Plant bulbs in late Winter to early spring for Summer flowering. A night flower which adores full sun to grow well.
