Flowering Cordyline Qestion

When it gets to the time of year when a cordyline can flower, is there anything you can look for early on to show it will be flowering. Can you see the flower stem growing when it is small/ just starting to grow.
Is there any sign's like, it slows down its growing. The last one I had that flowered the year it flowered it seemed to grow slower, then the flower appeared is there any link in that.



Quite likely - the plant transfers energy into producing the flowering stem. And of course you can see it starting, if you look in the centre early enough - not sure why you'd want to though - these plants aren't grown for their flowers, after all, and they often don't flower.
