Common Name: Anubias Chili Jalapeno
Anubias Chili Jalapeno is another rare variation of small-leaved Anubias plants. This miniature aquarium plant produces small, fleshy leaves that are a rich green color. Like other Anubias species, Anubias Chili Jalapeno is relatively hardy and easy to care for making it a great choice for beginners and seasoned hobbyists alike. This Anubias variation is amongst the smaller Anubias and works great as a midground plant in nano planted tanks. Like all Anubias plants, Anubias Chili Jalapeno is a slow grower, but having patience pays off with this aquatic plant.
Anubias Chili Jalapeno will grow best when the rhizome is attached to a hard surface such as aquarium driftwood or stones. Anubias species have low to medium light requirements and will benefit from regular fertilization along with CO2 injection. While CO2 is not necessary, it will promote faster growth and more robust leaves. Since Anubias are slow growers, its leaves are susceptible to algae growth if placed under lighting that is too strong or if maintenance is not consistent.
Propagation is easy and straightforward. To propagate Anubias, simply cut or pull apart rhizomes to be replanted or reattached. Make sure to keep the rhizomes above your substrate or the plant has the potential to rot.
