Anubias Nana Petite on Lava Stone
Common Name: Nana Petite
Anubias Nana Petite is one of the most sought-after Anubias. Like any other Anubias, its an extremely easy plant to grow and can survive a wide range of water parameters. They can grow in both aquariums and terrariums either submerged or emersed.
Anubias Nana Petite is a flowering plant that grows best when the rhizome is attached to a hard surface such as wood or stones. This particular Anubias Nana Petite comes readily attached to lava stone. Lava stone has porous surfaces and is the perfect medium for aquatic plants such as Anubias or Bucephalandra to attach themselves to. Since it comes already attached, you can easily add it to your aquarium or even add aquatic moss to the stone! The Anubias is tied onto the rock with a string. In time the roots will attach onto the rock and the string may be removed. Anubias 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.
- Anubias are strong plants that can thrive in a variety of environments.
- These epiphytes can be planted above the substrate or attached to hardscape.
- Burying the rhizome, will cause the plant to melt and die.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
- CO2 injection and quality aquarium soil will yield better growth.
- Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
