Do you count the leaves? How do you keep track of new growth?
At any rate, my anubias grows WAAAYYYY slower than that. I have read online an average of one new leaf every 3 weeks, I am not sure mine grows that fast either.
29 gal tank
low/mod light with a split photoperiod - 10 hours/day
pH around 8.0
add ferts to the water column when I do a water change
Tank was basically neglected for a few years, but for the last couple months, its been a water change every other week
I have riparium planters near the water surface. Its my little "plant hospital", I put the baby plants that break off or bits of rhizome that were trimmed and need to grow in there. They get lots of light, I assume the CO2 is higher there near the surface, and so on. I would expect it to be a good place for them to grow, but they grow super slow. As in, its been months, and only 1-2 new leaves, if that.
