Help! Corn plant blooming

12 years ago

I have 2 corn plants that are just starting to bloom at the same time. I live in a Northern climate and when they bloomed before, it was summer and I was able to put them outside. Obviously I can not this time with the snow and cold. There are only a handful of flowers that are just starting to open, and I'm almost gagging on the fragrance. Does anyone know for sure that if I cut off the flowers, (which I really don't want to do, but don't know if I will survive through this, lol) the plant will definetly stop growing? What about the possiblity of cutting off part of the flowering stem, and leaving just a few small balls of flowers? Please help! It's too cold to open a window and this is only the beginning. I wish I had a room I could move it to, but that's not possible either. If anyone has any sugggestions, I would love to hear them. Thank you.
