I'm so excited!! Is there anything I can do to keep it blooming/healthy/happy? How long does the flower last? OMG I'm waaay too excited. I love gardening as well as fish-keeping, so this is so awesome for me. XD

The one I cut into TWO separate plants was big. The main stem is as thick as a finger!! AND I just noticed 2 MORE flowers are beginning to peek out!!!!  I think it is safe to say that dividing an Anubas is a good idea (If it is healthy!)!!!

Awesome!

 

I like your crypts! They'll produce lovely flowers too if you grow them out of the water emergent. :)

Oh is that what those other brownish plants are called? Are you saying I have to grow them taller than the other plants?

 

Wow, so beautiful! And so male looking. :teehee :teehee :teehee

Haha, omg. :D

Nope. They won't grow tall enough to grow out of the tank. What I meant was that if you grew one emergent (in a little glass vase, pot plant, etc) you'd end up with a flower. Growing aquatic plants out of water in a little container has become quite popular in recent years (also known as wabi kusa). It was popularised by the late aquascaper Takashi Amano. :)

I was looking around in my shrimp tank today and Guess What? The anubias has sprouted a flower! So cool! Maybe one day the anubias in the main fish tank will decide to shoot off some flowers.

I've actually had several grow out of the water. They're rigid enough to do it if it isn't too deep :)

Oh man, I love Mr.Amano! Is that the only way the crypts will flower? My tank is sort of deep. Maybe i can make a shelf of some sort in the tank.

Oh how cool! I wonder if it's flowering season for them.

Oh how deep was the tank where that happened? The pictures i posted are of my 36G bow front. It's pretty deep.
