IMPORTANT: Our aquarium plants may vary in growth forms. Because of this, please understand how to properly transition and acclimate plant(s) into desired form(s). We do our best to thoroughly clean and inspect all plants prior to shipment but cannot guarantee lead bunch or potted plants to be free from snails and/or algae. Not your thing? Please consider purchasing tissue culture aquarium plants! 

Tissue culture plants are cultivated in sterile lab settings ensuring your plant is free from pests, snails and algae! These are young specimen that are grown in emersed forms. Gel should always be removed prior to planting.

LIVE PLANTS ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO STRESS AND DAMAGE FROM TRANSIT - This may appear in the form of minimal melt, leaf loss, cosmetic damage, etc. Refunds or replacements will not be issued for plants with viable root systems or that die out of our care.

Anubias plants are hardy and beginner-aquarist friendly!

Anubias Barteri var. Nana or simply just Anubias Nana is well-known in the planted tank hobby for being one of the hardiest aquarium plant options. Like other Anubias, Anubias Nana is tolerant of a wide range of aquarium conditions and will adapt to most environments it is placed in. We recommend Anubias to aquascapers who are in search of easy aquatic plants that do not require CO2 injection but are as equally beautiful when compared to some of the more finicky aquatic plant species available in the hobby. Anubias has a well-earned bullet-proof reputation, but will appreciate a well-maintained environment with clean water, CO2 injection and low to medium lighting.

Anubias Nana is an epiphytic plant! This means that it does not require being planted in soil to grow and will do best when attached to aquarium driftwood or in the crevices of an aquascape layout. Care should be taken to ensure the rhizome is not buried as this may cause the plant irreversible damage over time. When ready for propagation, this plant's rhizome can be split and reattached elsewhere.
