Anubias nana

A very nice but slow growing low plant. Like Cryptocorynes, Anubias will melt if the quality of the aquariums becomes extremely poor, these plants need a clean home.

Other faster growing plants in the aquarium will easily over take a slow growing Anubias. Other plants must be trimmed around them so they can still get light.

These plants aren't rooted in the gravel. The rhizome should stay above the gravel. The plants can be tied to driftwood or rocks like Java ferns. The can also be planted above the gravel with the bottom roots going in to the gravel and the main rhizome still on top of the gravel, as in the pictured plant.
