Grow it in live LFS, stand in water all year long, subject to direct sunlight and allow to get cold (down to freezing) in winter and you ought to get the large yellow flowers in spring-summer.

    Cheers.
    Thanks, Rob!

    Upon further inspection, unless it's my imagination, the longer leaves seem to be divided up into those that are longer and skinnier, (as if they were flower stalks) and ones that are a little shorter and a little wider. Is it possible that the longer, skinnier ones are flower stalks?

    The flower spikes have clear clusters of buds at their tops from quite early on....

    That would make sense. From the surface, they have filled their container. let alone what I can't see beneath.
