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:

my anubias bloom like crazy. you have to cut them off after a little bit because they like to rot.

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?
