Anubias Nana growing too... quickly?
Hello again all, I know this may sound like a strange complaint/question, but has anyone here had experience with an Anubias Nana growing too quickly?
I've had mine in my tank for about a month, and about 2-2 1/2 weeks ago it finally acclimated enough to send up its first new leaf. Yay! I was satisfied knowing it was thriving enough to shoot off one leaf, and I figured that would be the last one for a while. Not so. A day after I saw the first new leaf, I noticed a second one beginning to emerge. Followed by a third. And a fourth.
So far, in the course of less than 3 weeks, this single nana has grown four new full (albeit still small) leaves, is halfway towards uncurling a fifth, and I think I see a sixth and seventh budding nearby. Oh, and they're all on one side of the rhizome, the part that's actually farthest away from the light (The light is on a timer, set for 12 hours on/12 hours off). The tank is still in the nitrite stage of fishless, and has been for quite a while now. The heat is at 86 F to try and make it hurry up.
Furthermore, since the leaf explosion started, the adult leaf on the very end of the other side has begun to turn gold, but still looks perfectly healthy otherwise. I'm not very concerned and I'll be pruning it off soon regardless, since I'm fairly certain the discoloration is being caused by the nutrients being directed towards the new leaves. Which brings me back to my main question(s):
Does anyone know why my Nana, a species notorious for growing slower than Christmas, is shooting off leaves like its going out of style? And if its a nutrient imbalance, why is only one of the preexisting adult leaves turning yellow? Shouldn't there be more doing the same? Just what am I doing, well, right?
I know it's something strange to question, but I'm more curious than worried at this point.
