Mine has the same every morning I wake up and turn the lights on its partially closed then when I get back from work it's fully open showing off its yellow/white thing. What is this and what does it mean???

Joey, that is probably just the flower...haha I mean just like flowers outside, they are closed at night and open in the day time, using the sun as their clock so when you turn on your lights the plant sees that it is time to open up so then it opens, and when you get back from work it is still open since you have not turned off the lights I assume. Just my guess.

Hahha okay I worded that completely wrong! I understand the opening and closing through day and night what I meant by what does this mean is... The flowering what does it actually do what does the plant acheive from this???

Looks nice, anubias grow along the rhizome so you can cut it as needed if you ever want to propagate it. The spathe is like a flower but it doesn't do anything underwater.

I think i will propagate it, the rhizome is really long but only two thirds of it has leaves.

Oh psh, I took that the wrong way LOL. The plant will flower when it is "Happy" as the OP stated. Whenever anubias like the water parameters and are healthy, they will flower like this. So it's a good thing. Doesn't do anything for the plant except make it looks pretty

Wow lucky I wish I could get away with that. I have to dose ferts like crazy and still have deficiencies that make my planted tank look awful.

Lucky, mine isn't doing anything and has been sitting there with a little white thing poking out for like 2 weeks! I know anubias flowers are yellowish-white, so I guess it is doing good

Hahaha, yeah. I just split one of my anubias into like 5 different plants lol hopefully they will grow pretty good. Mine was making those new little plants along the rhizome like yours so I thought I would slit it up.

Here's a little factoid, if you let the anubias plant's spathe go above water, and you have 2 or more open at once, you can use them to pollinate one another to get anubias seeds.
