Definitely post a pic when it does.

This is not an easy plant to even maintain, so you must be doing it right. Well done. Let us know how it goes, and photos of the flower would be welcomed.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

+1. Pics of the flowers are mandatory!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

very very nice. Please post your parameters, temps, fertilisers, and lighting.

When the flower breaks the surface, VERY gently brush it with an extremely soft paintbrush to get it to self-pollinate.

It'll either set seeds or plantlets- hope for plantlets.

Don't worry, it'll do it again.
