I am growing nana and coffeefolia at 2.9 watts/gallon. I get a new leaf
about every two weeks and it seems 1 out of ten is always in flower. I
think that's good growth. The only problem is when algae breaks out in high
light conditions the Anubias can't outgrow it like faster plants.

I've noticed this effect myself and I always assumed that the yeast performs
slower under the increased pressure.
