    Hello TFF,
    Today I come to you people with yet another question. Attached is a picture of a plant I wish to identify.

    I would also like to know what the bloom-looking thing is. I suspect a seed pod.

    I got this plant nearly 3 months ago at my LFS, along with some hitchhikers. I still haven't gotten rid of those boogers. 1481319670423-2090472708.jpg

    I'm sorry, I just realized there are 3 plants in that photo. Here's a more helpful one:

    It grew in 50 minutes. I hope it's ok... 1481323063062-1865640945.jpg

    Agree, that is a flowering Anubias barteri. Harmless. The flower will eventually turn brown as it dies, you can remove it then (cut it off at the base of the stem).

    Make sure the thick rhizome does not get buried or it can rot. The fine roots that emerge from the rhizome will pull themselves into the substrate as seems to be happening in the photo.

    Byron.
