I wasn't but I could if no one else does.

OK, I guess no one else is going to. 

Our B.l. did about the same as yours is doing.  Many flower stems, most not 
opening very much.  However, after awhile some of the flower pods did open with 
the outer petals laying flat on the water surface. The inner petals weren't that 
exciting but some did turn to seed and new B.l. sproutlets appeared here and 
there without any help from us. 

This happended with twp separate plants, under both MH and FL light.  One tnak 
was 24" deep (MH) and the other was 20" deep (FL).  One tank had laterite and 
substrate heat ("warm feet") and the other had just laterite. 

Both plants eventually went dormant then came back again but less robustly than 
before (puny short leaves).  We don't have them anymore.
