Anubias flowering.

Doesn't happen very often, so I thought I'd share:

And carrying on the Anubias tradition of 'sturdiness' it last a fairly long time as well. Enjoy!

Hard to say, but some believe it may be triggered by sudden changes in the environment. A few weeks ago I cleared floating duckweed, removed a dosen of overgrown vals and upped CO2. That may have caused the flowering.

Thanks. It's a regular Nana. This is only the second flowering in a year.

I think it has more to do with pH rather than CO2. When the amount of CO2 raises or lowers so does the pH.

Mine do it constantly, but I have no idea what triggers it.
