aquarium plants blooming underwater

Hi I am looking for opinions on an aquatic plant question. I am wondering if it is possible for aquatic plants to bloom under the surface of the water. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks

One of my Anubias just bloomed last week, and it looks like another bloom is coming. The little flowers let out streams of bubbles when the lights are on, it's pretty cool:

I have a Crinum Thaianum water onion plant. I am wondering if those can bloom underwater. Does anyone here have some experience with these onion plants blooming?
thanks
