Common Name: Anubias Nangi
Anubias Nangi is a hybrid variant of Anubias created from crossing Anubias Nana and Anubias Gilletii. This Anubias type was first created by Robert A Gasser and has been a commonly available to hobbyist since.
Anubias is native to the tropical regions of Africa where it can be found growing along streams, rivers and marshes. It's 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.
