Identify my plant

Could you help me identify a plant growing in my mother's planter.
*It flowers only in the evening.
*The leaves and the stems are sticky.
*The flower just last one night.
*It has grown 3f tall.
Sorry photos are not the best!

    Hi, and welcome to the forum.
    It reminds me of Nicotiana, but I'm not at all sure. 
  • @Juliewestmua Maybe download the pictures and repost them... identifying from a tiny rephotographed screen is not quite possible.

  • +1 for Nicotiana.  No idea which variety, though.
  • Another vote for Nicotiana.

    It does look like Nicotiana Sylvestris which I grow, but the flowers on mine are not quite as long as the ones in the photo - my plants get to between 5-7ft
    The scent in the evening is wonderful

    Found a photo from a couple of years ago

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Thank you...I will pass this on to my mother ❤
