Can anyone tell me if this is a flower?





I think this is an anubias, and about a week ago I noticed this strange unicorn horn style growth. My friend thought it was a leaf but there's no way. It was dark at first but now its white and purple?? A couple other things are happening in my tank right now with different plants. I have some what I believe is vallisneria? and its grown a stem that grew 4 inches along my gravel, and has a little nob that appears to be rooting to the gravel. I will add a pic. My other "anubias" has roots growing up out of the gravel and there is a little white ball in them? Will also add pic. A
If anyone can tell me what these are I'd appreciate it.

That looks like a crypt rather than an anubias and yeah I think it is flowering. Cool! Check out this thread to see another flowering crypt, looks kinda similar: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=97914

I agree it does look like a crypt.
