E. osiris flowers

Greetings - Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get my Echinodorus
osiris' stalk to flower?  The last flower stalk that appeared grew to a
length of 3.5 feet but none of the flower buds that clustered together at
intervals along the stalk opened.  Eventually the buds just turned black,
so I cut the stalk off.  Now another stalk has appeared, is growing
rapidly and this time I want flowers!  (I searched the archives using the
key words "osiris flowers" but only 1 message appeared)  Any ideas anyone?
