    U. Nelumbifolia flowers start out like....?

    Can anyone confirm if these are flower stalks coming up? They're way thicker than normal leaf stalks... I'm just curious and impatient and couldn't find anything on Google haha.

    I'm trying to remember what my flowers looked like, but those look more like runners to me. This utric makes runners like crazy so if you are familiar with those and the new stalks look different then maybe...

    I've grown U.nelumbifolia for about 4 years now and I've never seen runners that resemble newly emerging flower stalks. Mine just got done with a couple stalks and is working on a few more now.

    Here's what you'll have to look forward to soon.

    Pleasure.
    Here are a few pics of my flowers last year. If I find a early flower stalk I will post a pic here for reference.

    You beat me to punch!

    Take Johnny's advise. I haven't seen them in awhile.
