Seen from above, the Lachenalia canaliculata raceme displays some of the small, pointed bracts growing below each flower but usually concealed in the dense spike. These upper bracts seem to have formed normally while their respective flowers never materialised.
The lower tepal tip of a L. canaliculata flower that sags lower than the other two inner tepals forming the perianth mouth, may also be long, protruding further than the others (Leistner, (Ed.), 2000; iNaturalist; www.pacificbulbsociety.org).
