there are a number of "nodes" along the top portion of the growth from which buds will emerge. Any one node will produce one bud at any one time, but multiple nodes can fire off during a particular blooming, lining the end of the growth (which becomes needle-thin and spike-like) with multiple flowers. Mine doesn't tend to bloom this profusely, sending up between one and four flowers during any one blooming. Perhaps I need to make sure it gets more sun so the entire plant is blazing hot before it gets a rainshower cooldown.
The flowers, thankfully, last longer than just the morning like a Vanilla flower...they remain fresh until dark, at which point they'll start to wilt and be fully wilted by the next morning.
