Yes, those are flower stalks.

I do wish members would read the profiles as things like this are usually mentioned. The Vall profiles explain the male plant and female plant that both have distinct flowers.

Except for ferns and mosses, most (perhaps all) the plants we keep in our tanks do naturally flower. We may rarely if ever see this, due to various factors involving emersed/submersed, parameters, nutrients, light and temperature. Often the only hint of flowers will be those that may be on the plant when we buy it.

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]

maybe make a separate section for plant profiles next to the fish profiles link.. separate link most don't expect to find plant profiles when they click fish profiles
