    I keep my U. Nelumbifolia very very wet and it has grown like this for years. It's in an east facing window sill and is in flower right now. Temps can go as low as 40f with no problems.

    This is a currently-developing U. nelumbifolia flower stalk (pic taken ~2 min ago) for comparison. It is currently about 15" tall - only about the top 3" are in the pic. The U-shaped bend at the top is normal & has been present since the stalk emerged from the media. The developing flower buds are visible from an early stage also.
    All the best,

    Sorry for the late response. I think you're right. The tip of it kind of just turned black. I have similar coming out of another nelumb. Oh well I'm sure I'll get flowers eventually
