How did you pollinate the flower? Thats cool! I have several flowering right now.
You need to have two flowering anubias, are not genetic relatives. They must be in a start to bloom with a difference in 3 - 4 days.
Can only be pollinated inflorescence at the age of 1 - 2 days. When the spatha is fully open, the pollen on the synandrien no.



Pollen taken from the inflorescence in which the spatha began to shut down, on the synandrien appeared pollen. This is usually a 3 - 4 days after the beginning of flowering.



Pollen is transferred to the pistil, with a soft brush for artists.

:D Hi Alexandra!
No differences in inflorescence Anubias barteri var. barteri and Anubias barteri var. barteri 'Broad Leaf', I have not found. I think that even Wim Crusio not distinguish them. :D

To compare inflorescence Anubias barteri var. barteri 'Broad Leaf'.


To distinguish them can only be in shape and size of leaves.

Dear Vladimir! Thanks so much for such a great visual explanation, it is very helpful. I figured online stores with anubias for sale are not run by Wim Crusio :D:D:D, and I am not expecting that, but still many places mislabel plants brutally. And now with your amazing pictures and knowledge you are sharing, I think a lot of people will find this thread very interesting and much needed.
Cheers! :D

Nice, very nice :)
All ofthe leaves are in great shape. Mine always seems to have one problem or another. I wish I knew how you accomplished this. Are some grown emersed and then submerged? Thanks for sharing.

Thank you all for the nice comments:D
Badly know English, therefore, I will show more than tell.
All my anubias live in the emersed, in plastic containers tightly closed glass.


As substrate I use a haydite, without any additions. The water level is visible in the photo, rhizome should be above the water.



Once a week, substitute the 1 / 4 part water and add fertilizer. Special preparation of water I do not produce, out of my tap water flowing from such indicators:
pH - 7,2
KH - 5
GH - 14
The solution of fertilizer do I do independently, their two:
#1
H2O - 100 ml.
Citric acid - 1,2 g.
FeSO4x7H2O - 800 mg.
and 100 mg. any mixture of micronutrients in chelate form:


#2
H2O - 100 ml.
K2SO4 - 3,5 g.
MgSO4 x 7H2O - 650 mg.
Weekly on 2 ml. on each plant from a syringe under the roots. Nitrogen and phosphorus produced snails that live together with anubias :D

For lighting I use these lamps, approximately 0.3 watts per 1 cubic decimeter of greenhouses:
