You miss the point.  When the flower blooms inside the fan, it can bloom,
die, and eventually rot without ever showing itself until the rot spreads
into the rhizome and the fan keels over.  Definitely not something you want
to have happen.  Sometimes the first visible sign is just a wet, rotten
petal oozing out from between the leaves.  Definitely not something you wish
to see!
