Smile Wow! Finally a flower!

Well, it's amazing. This tank (16g bowfront) is just rife with BBA. I can't get consistent CO2 with my DIY. Oh well, i've resigned to that and am currently putting together a pressurized system.


I trimmed several leaves off of an A. barteri in that tank a few weeks ago, and now... A FLOWER!

It's hard for me to get a clear shot with my Point 'n shoot, especially with the bowfront. Anyhow, here's 2 shots; without, and with flash.

There's an A. congensis directly behind the barteri, but the flower is from the barteri.

Thanks for looking

My nana just sent up a flower in the last week as well (about a day before I added pressurized CO2). Is this a good thing when they do this? I've heard of plenty of plants (including some of my orchids) that tend to flower more when they are stressed, as a last resort for propagating before they croak...
