no there certainly leaves the rib seems to curve off to one side like one side of the leaf is growing slower than the other they are also very light green. my local aqatic dealer says fertilise it and promply tried to flog me some, it has been fertilised once, there are cryps growing all around its base could they be stealing its nutriets? i have a literal forest of crypts

the plant is growing in sand its roots are in the sand spreading out a long way from the plant in the sand and under the filter housing the plants rhizome sits on its roots about 4 cm off the surface the plant itself is very large and is 5x bigger than when purchased there is a one year fertiliser stick onder the main mass of roots the water is soft and its in a well cycled tank containg mostly small ciclids i have other plants that are turning into nothing due to fish abuse but the anubias is untoched i have a dwarf anubias grownig in the same tank in the substrate thats doing fine so im really out of ideas on why its doing what its doing
