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.

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.

Yea, those aponogeton spikes grow fast.. I measured one growing 3.5 inches in a single day.

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