Anubias nana has tall, variable foliage that is usually pointed to ovate. It prefers moderate lighting, an alkalinity of 3 - 8 dKH, and a pH of 6.0 - 7.5. When planting the aquatic plant, take special care of the rhizome and the roots. A quality substrate fertilizer is necessary as well as a warmed tank bottom. CO2 fertilization is also recommended.
Because it grows well from cuttings, you can usually reproduce it easily. Under correct water conditions, the Anubias nana propagates by side shoots on the rhizome, causing rhizome division. It can be attached to logs in an aquarium to form lovely tropical scenes.
