    Cool! I remember anubias being very slow growers, however when they grow really big, they look amazing :)

    This one is pretty happy. I actually had to slit the plant into two because it was growing so large. Some of the older leaves are the size of dinner plates. Between the two plants, i am probably seeing 6-7 new leaves pop up at a time, which may be every few weeks.

    I am curious to find out if it will bloom under water or if it will surface first.

    Thats a good sign then :) Do you dose anything? Iron? Potassium? They both help with anubias growth :)!
