Dwarf Anubias is notorious for its hardiness and ease of care. This plant will grow in just about any type of lighting, but its leaves grow more quickly and densely under high-intensity lighting. Dwarf Anubias is generally considered a slow grower when compared to other plants. It has been known to grow up to 6 inches tall. Anubias nana can tolerate just about any type of water hardness and pH levels; however, it tends to do best in soft water with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5. The best temperature range for this plant is 72–82 °F. The leaves of this plant are large, pointed at the ends, and leathery in texture. Because its leaves are very tough, they are usually not eaten by fish or other plant-eating critters. As with all plants in the anubias family, Dwarf Anubias grows from a rhizome, so it may need to be anchored down in your substrate or tied to driftwood or rocks.
The Dwarf Anubias plant in the picture is one that is planted in one of my personal aquariums, and is the same size we send. Approximate shipping size ranges from 3" to 5" tall and 3" to 4" wide, which is larger than the shipping sizes of most others on the market! It comes with bare roots that should be planted under the substrate.
