Yeh! Yeh! The Corn plants in my garden are flowering. In Cantonese, the corn plant is referred to as Tit Shu.

Why am I so happy? This is because the Chinese have a saying 鐵樹. 鐵樹開花,富貴榮華 which translates to mean "when the corn plant begins to flower, it is a sign of wealth luck coming ones way". Therefore, the corn plant 鐵樹 or Dracaena Massangeana is considered an auspicious plant.
