What is my sword doing?

Took it a couple days, but it's finally hit the surface, and still going. I assume it's going to flower?





Also, can anyone confirm what type of sword it is?
I've been told it was a ruffle sword, but I'm not sure.
It's huge (my tank is 24in tall, and some leaves hit the surface)
It's leaves are right behind the celebes rainbow and in the back left of the picture.

It certainly looks like it's going to flower. That's one happy sword plant

I'm not very good at telling the various types of green swords apart so I won't try to guess what it might be. One sure way to ID a sword plant is to get a good picture of the blooming flower and have someone knowledgeable in such things take a look at it.

That would be my huge-normous anubias barteri

I should prob add a new pic. This extension has grown about another 10-12 inches.

yeah, not only will it flower, but if you get the stalk back down in the water after it does, you'll get plantlets starting to grow. i have something like 15 baby swords from my monster since i put it out in my goldfish pond. soon i will have to bring it back in, but i dont have any idea how i will get it back in any tanks, its so huge now!
