One of the anubias nana plants is flowring in the 60 gallon aquarium. It is a plant that I bought recently...I am wondering if this flower and perhaps also the leaf shape is showing that this particular plant was grown emersed or submerged? I have been reading that some aquarium plants are grown emersed at nurseries and that when they are emersed, the leaf shape tends top change (such as Lobelia cardinalis and some of the crypts (?) ). Honestly, I am not experienced enough to be able to know the difference on the anubias...can someone please tell me if this anubias nana flower/leaf shape shows an emersed or submerged form? Or maybe there really isn't a difference with this kind of plant?
I guess what I am trying to ask is this---is the anubias nana flowering because it was grown emersed? And wouldn't a flower want to be above water for pollination by insects?
This is all so fascinating---what fun to have an anubias flower!
