    Ok thank you. Is there a way to get blbs out of the flower or any way to propagate them?

    Yep, it will make a two-pronged flower. I have read that if you rub two of them together they will go to seed. Haven't tried that one yet, though. I'm not that hard up for plants OR entertainment. ha ha ha

    Rub them together and let them sit, they'll do the rest of the work. I'm not sure about this particular plant but I would assume that once it goes to seed the stalk will die. Leave it alone if it does. I would guess the seed will fall back into the tank and once they sprout you can move them to desirable locations in the tank.
