When the bud opened up, cala lily is what came to my mind, too. An aquatic form of cala lily. The resemblance is definitely there. I wonder if Anubias are the aquatic counterpart to the terrestrial cala lily.

Yes, it was a lovely flower. I hope for a repeat performance someday.

I also have nanas in my 20, much smaller than this one -- maybe one of them will bloom sometime, too.

One thing this proves: Live aquarium plants can grow and thrive in an all-gravel substrate. Mine is.
