Anubias Nana Petite White
Common Name: Anubias Nana Petite White
Anubias Nana Petite White is an extremely rare variant of Anubias Nana Petite. The spectacular white coloration is an uncommon result of a mutation that has occurred, causing the plant to have little to no chlorophyll in its leaves. The white patterns that appear on the leaves will vary with each leaf that is produced. Be aware that some leaves may be greener than others. High light and CO2 will aid in the production of whiter leaves.
When planting Anubias, it is crucial that the rhizome not be buried. Rhizomes that are buried are prone to melt, which will lead to death of the plant. Anubias grow best when attached to hardscapes, such as driftwood and rocks, by either glue or string.
- 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.
- Please be sure to remove this plant from its pot. For instructions on how to properly prep aquarium plants, click here.
