i didn't know these plants flowered!

Check this pre-attached-to-wood jobby I picked up today for Mr Betta, it has a spunky flower!

He likes his new digs :)

Do I just snip off the flower stem when it starts to look spent? Will it go brown or something?

Yup, just snip it off at the base of the stem once it starts looking wilted.

I love Anubias flowers! I have 7-8 Anubias in my 75G and I often have atleast one flower. I've been lucky enough to have 4 plants flowering at one time though, I wish I had a photo on my phone to add ! I agree water changes are key to making these plants flower.

That is definitely possible, and I've never actually thought about temperature. My tank sits at around 78-80 and in summer can hit 84+ during the day, so they are certainly warm year round.
