Cool Anubias Nana is flowering!?

I think my anubias nana is flowering! its just making a long stalk that taller than the other leaves. This particular stalk grew at the same time as a new leaf was growing. The new leaf has already developed, yet the stalk continues to grow taller! i doesnt look like a leaf. I will have pics later this evening. What should I do if it is a flower? thanks

Mine has flowered before also. I just left it and eventually it broke off and I discarded it. Maybe some of the plant gurus out there would have more info for you.

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank

The flowers are pretty. Just let them be.

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

It looks nice. Mine has flowered like that also. A heathly sign IMO. I'd think the bubbles coming off the plant would be a release of oxygen.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

the tank is a mess due to an outbreak of green dust algae and green spot algae. I currently applying flurish excel and my banana plant is now shading the anubas plant so hopefully the algae will subside.i wonder when the flower will open 0_0 it doesnt seem to be getting taller. At least i cant tell
