Hi - still new to the aquarium game - have a recently established planted tank (have posted pictures earlier if folks want to see) and I am still astonished when plants start to flower underwater! This has happened a few times now to different plants i have. The latest is a anubis plant. Whats the point of flowering underwater unless bumblebee-snails really live up to their namesake?! I presume its a good sign for happy plants? Thanks

Anubias plants flower under water because they aren't true submerged plants.
I'll now step aside for someone with more knowledge on this to reply more comprehensively.
