Potted Anubias Nana Narrow Leaf

(7 reviews) Write a Review

Anubias nana narrow leaf is a smaller, bushier variant of Anubias. Like other Anubias-species, it is best planted in a shady spot to minimize algae growth on the leaves. Avoid covering the rhizome when planting to keep it from rotting. It can be easily fastened to driftwood or rock with fishing line, thread, or superglue gel. Herbivorous fish do not eat the very tough and robust leaves.

Natural History

Anubias barteri var. nana was first described by Adolf Engler in 1899 as A. nana. Little is known about the origins of the narrow leaf variant.

Pro Tips

Anubias can be propagated by cutting the rhizome into pieces. New growth on cut pieces will begin at one or more leaf nodes so ensure that each piece has at least 3 nodes ideally with leaves as well.

    Despite spending 5 days in the mail, the anubias nana narrow leaf arrived very healthy thanks to impeccable packaging. They were packed with care in a heat sealed bag, with just enough humidity/moisture to keep the leaves fresh and a heat pack to ensure they didn't freeze in this weather. It's been about 2 weeks now since they have arrived and they're still in great shape, unaffected by their 5 day journey. I must say, I am beyond impressed!

    The narrow leaves Anubias arrived in good condition and are very nice looking plant. I added them to some driftwood and they seem to be doing well after about a week or so.
