Potted Anubias Nana Petite

(4 reviews) Write a Review

Anubias nana petite is easy and ideal for beginners. It has the smallest leaves of the commonly-available Anubias making it a great choice for smaller aquariums or for use as a foreground plant. 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 sp. 'Petite' is a mutation which appeared in cultivation at the Oriental aquarium plant nursery in Singapore.

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.

Origin: Cultivar

    A pretty little plant with a beautiful dark green color which makes for a nice contrast against the other plants.
