Anubias Nana (Anubias barteri var. nana) is one of the most popular aquarium plants due to its tolerance to a wide range of aquarium conditions. This plant can be grown fully submersed under water. We like to use this plant on branching driftwood or along the foreground attached to stones. It is especially great for shrimp tanks, community aquariums, and many styles of aquarium aquascapes. For optimal growth, tie the plant to wood or rocks. SubstrateSource potted plants are grown in 2-inch slotted or mesh plastic pots. The pots are made out of recycled plastic. Potted plants are grown without soil in rockwool media. The rockwool media allows the plants to grow in a clean, soil-free environment, ready to ship. To prepare your plant for the aquarium, first gently remove the pot and peel away the rockwool media. Tie the Anubias to an anchor (soaked driftwood, stone, or other decoration item. Note: Never release plant species into the wild. Before discarding excess growth, allow the plants to fully dry. Photo depicts sample plant, not the actual plant you will receive. Some discoloration may occur during shipping due to the absence of light during transit.
