Anubias Minima UNS Tissue Culture
Common Name: Anubias Minima
Anubias are extremely easy plants to grow and can survive a wide range of water parameters. The Anubias Minima has long and slender leaves in contrast to the Anubias Nana which has short and rounded leaves. Like other Anubias plants, they can grow in both aquariums and terrariums either submerged or emersed.
Anubias grow best when attached to a hard surface such as stone, driftwood or other aquarium decoration. This plant comes attached to driftwood so all you have to do is place it into your aquarium.
They are flowering plants that have low to medium light requirements and can benefit from regular fertilization. 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.
