Anubias Nana is one of the most popular aquatic plants in the hobby. If you’re new to planted tanks and want to try growing for the first time, this is a good one to start with. It’s an extremely easy plant to grow and can survive a wide range of water parameters. Like other Anubias plants, it can grow in both aquariums and terrariums either submerged or emersed.
Anubias Nana is a flowering plant that grows best when the rhizome is attached to a hard surface such as wood or stones. They have low to medium light requirements and can benefit from regular fertilization. CO2 is not necessary but can promote faster growth and more robust leaves. Since its a slow grower, the leaves are susceptible to algae growth if placed under high lighting.
Propagation is easy and straightforward; simply cut or pull apart rhizomes to be replanted.
