Does anyone have a picture of what an anubias flower stalk looks like? One of my anubias plants shot up what look slike a flower stalk/bud.

It hasnt opened yet so I don't know if its a "turbo leaf" or a flower forming.

Here's the picture...



I've had my Anubias Lancelota flower a few times. But never my A. Nana or A. Coffeefolia. I love these plants, though!

The Flowering Anubius as actually my smallest Anubius var. Nana! I was very surprised to find the stalk last night.

It looks as though it might open today. If it does I'll post pictures.

Anybody have any idea what might cause the anubias to flower? I had ONE v. nana flower ONCE, as others said never my other flavors of anubias. I am really interested to find out ways to entice it to flower ...

Mine Flowered after My Ph Crashed and I brought it back up to close to 7 rapidly (massive water change). This also lowered my Nitrates quite a bit, and raised my phosphates significantly (my tap water is phosphate heavy)

I hate that the flowers don't last long, though. Mine disintegrated with in a week.

I have an anubia nana that flowered about 2week ago and the flower is still there!!! It took about 1.5 weeks from when I first noticed it to the day it opened. It is on a stem about 2" long.

My water conditions are as follows:
Ph 6.8-7.0 GH 5 deg. KH 6 deg. NO3 5-10 ppm NO2 & NH3 0 ppm PO4 0 ppm
Plants: Rotala Rotundifolia; Bacopa; Hygrophilia difformis; corscrew vals; unknown crypts.; java moss; just a little algae.
Substrate : 50% Mix of Fluorite/gravel but anubias growing on driftwood

Lighting: DIY light hood w/4 36" T-8 fluorescents- 2- 5500K
1- 6500K 1- 8500K all from ZOOMED.

DIY CO2- you can calculate the amount from the Ph and KH levels.
tank size 40 gal.
Fish- 12 Cardinal Tetras 2 Otocinclus 2 cories 1 SAE 8 Caridina Japonicas 1 tiny frog.
