Thanks Delonix - they lasted about a week.

It should put out more flower spikes. The ones here put our flower spikes over several month (of course these plants are growing in the ground).

Now that is good news!

I know large, older plants produce many flower stalks at the same time.

I've just noticed a new leaf coming through which has effectively moved the old flower stem to one side of the centre line of the plant. Also, this bulb is not producing any offsets.

These plants tend to bifurcate or trifurcate quickly. I had a bifurcated beautiful, large Queen Emma Lily (Crinum asiaticum) for a long time and then last year I divided it. It has not done well ever since...and hasn't bloomed either. My purple leaf Queen Emma Lily is growing very large, however, hasn't produced any flower spikes either. Not sure why. Typically, all would be flowering by now.

Only trifurcate!
The other bulb has twelve separate shoots!!

Yes, some bulbs can produce quite a few stems.
