My dwarf sag is at it again

My dwarf sag is in full reproductive mode, LOL!

I have been away from my computer and aquarium for the most part for the past 10 or so days due to some company coming in to town. But that didn't stop my dwarf sag from sprouting two new flower stems.

I am going to try to gather pollen from the male flowers from the 2nd stalk (the male flowers are produced after the female flowers wilt) and try to pollinate the female flowers from the 3rd stalk. It will be very interesting if I can get the plant to seed!

Here is a photo of the plant as of today:



Sorry for the bad pic, I have the wrong lens attached, and didn't feel like changing them for the snapshot.

I noticed a 3rd plant putting out the fourth flower stem. I haven't been doing anything out of the ordinary... I wonder what is making them all flower.
