My Croton adds a splash of color to my living room

My Croton adds a splash of color to my living room and as a bonus, it’s now flowering! The scent of the flowers is much stronger than I thought it would be. Everything in my apartment now smells like soapy chamomile.

How I made it flower:
Stress, apparently. Two months ago I moved it from a cool north-facing window to a brighter position near my south-facing window and gave it a round of fertilizer for indoor houseplants. It must have thought it was springtime in November.
