Hi Pottie ( and everyone else too) I am no expert when it comes to indoor plants and exotics, but plants often flower well if they think they are under some threat or other. So, your BoP may think it is not being pampered enough, or perhaps it thinks it may have upset you, so it gets on and flowers before you take it to the tip? Seriously it is a truly lovely specimen and whatever your care regime might be is working wonders. I have a rubber plant that I have had for more than 40 years, the only indoor plant that has ever deigned to live with me. It is in fact a cutting of the original which got too big. This one is now taller than me and about 6 ft across. I have a lovely spacious and sunny landing, and it sits in front of my favourite painting. However perhaps I need to do another cutting? My guess is that the first cutting was taken when I had had it for about 22/23 years, and this one is another 18/19 years on from that. She is called "Gwendoline"
