    This appeared on my anubias nana and although I've had it for a while this is the first time it's sprouted whatever this is not sure if it's good or bad

    It's just a flower, apparently they bloom sometimes. It just means it's a happy plant getting lots of nutrients. :)

    When I first planted the anubias in my planted, I didn't realize it had a rhizome and so I buried the whole thing except the leaves. Then the leaves got invaded by BBA so I finally noticed what I had done wrong. Only in the last couple days has the plant been making a slow recovery.

    O yeah I planted mine originally in gravel so it kind of stopped growing but it did latch onto the gravel so now I don't have to anchor or tie the plant down to anything since its weighed down by the gravel it won't let go of

    Congratulations on your blooming plant! Not everyone has blooms in their tanks.

    I have Eco-Complete and I used Flourish glue to make it stick to the gravel but it wouldnt really stay so... now I have it glued to the top of some lace rock.

    Congrats on your Anubias flower, mine blooms quite regularly often with two or three flowers on it.
    Once the flower starts to die back cut it off at the base so the plant doesn't waste energy making seeds & it may throw up another flower quite quickly.
    In my experience they don't like a lot of light, I have a cheap LED light on the tank it's in.
