    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.

    It's a really good LFS, I like going there a lot.

    Lucky i never had one of those

    It probably won't ever flower again in my low tech set up, haha! I should take lots of pictures :)

    No I believe you will continue to see regular blooms - in my set up, water changes trigger the blooms.

    Also.. I do not trim the flowers - I simply let them dissolve.

    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.

    Gosh that must look amazing! I shall live in hope then!

    I think warmer water is too, mine are in cold water and rarely flower.

    It didn't say on the tag, unfortunately
    However the leaves are a bit bigger and longer/oval shaped than the other Anubis Nana I have in my other tank
  13. ZahcWell Known MemberMember

    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.

    I think thats the kind.

    I had one attached to a huge driftwood piece when I bought mine.
