Anubias Short and Sharp

Aquatic Plants
Usually ships in 1-2 business days from our fulfillment center

Sharp and slender leaves make Anubias Short and Sharp an attractive aquatic plant. To be honest, we're not sure why "Short" was added to the name of this Anubias as this variant grows to be 8-10" in height. However, Aunbias Short and Sharp makes a great addition to any tank size larger than 7 gallons. Similar to other Anubias, it's a great choice for beginners due to its easy care and overall hardiness. Best when used as a mid-ground plant attached to stones or wood as an accent or centerpiece depending on tank size.

It's a flowering plant that grows best when the rhizome is attached to hardscape material such as wood or stone. Regular fertilization is favorable and low to medium lighting is sufficient as high lighting will promote the growth of algae on its leaves. CO2 is not required but promotes faster growth and robust leaves. 

Propagation is straightforward; simply cut or pull apart rhizomes to be reattached.
