MY CROTON PLANT FINALLY FLOWERED!

I read somewhere in the internet that Croton plants have flowers but so far, I have not seen my Croton plants bearing flowers before. Since then, on and off I have been keeping a look out for any sign of flowers on my Croton plants.
Last month while I was watering my plants, I was standing very near to my Croton plants and something caught my eyes. I bent closer to check. To my surprise and excitement this was what I saw!
For the first time my Croton plant was flowering! These were flower buds. The buds were not big and may go unnoticed.

The flowers stalk is only between 2 to 3 inches long from the main stem.

These must be the seeds? It was raining heavily and I didn't get to see the flowers.

I saw 2 flowers stalks from the same plant. I needed to trim another plant as the branches were getting out of shape. I propagated using the stem cuttings and I had another surprise. About 2 to 3 weeks later I saw flowers on one of the newly planted stem cuttings.

The flowers may be tiny but they are so pretty!

What a joy to have the opportunity to see these tiny flowers!

The flowers lasted about a week or more. The joy and reward of gardening is to get to see and enjoy the flowers, especially the rare ones.

After the flowers, I saw this.

Then the flower stalk dropped and could these be seeds? Anyway, I placed these "seeds" back onto the soil in the pot and let nature takes its course. If anything comes out of it, I will post about it in the future.

Tell the righteous it will be well with them,

for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.
