Drop the water level, emulate nature :) and then watch for flowers.

Or, remove the flower stalk so that the plant can put resources into the root or rhizome.

Was it on www.aquaticquotient.com someone showed photos of how to cut the rhizome to propagate?

mild climate Eriocaulons are annual plants
That occured to me too. I strongly suspect these plants are marginals, meaning shallow to emersed zone plants. If that is the case, they would be more used to propogating sexually, via flower and seed.

Terrestrial plant gardeners pinch out flowers, or deadhead, in order ot make the plant continue on. Possibly this will not work with aquatic plants.

Good to see you reappear, Naomi.
