Anubias Heterophylla is a classic Anubias species that offers a medium to large sizes Anubias in a planted aquarium tank. In its natural habitat, Anubias can be found growing on rocks close to stream edges partially emersed and submerged making it a great choice for both aquarium tanks and terrarium-like, emersed setups. Anubias Heterophylla, like most Anubias, is quite forgiving in nature and is easily loved by hobbyists of all skill levels due to its hardy nature and ability to adapt well to a wide range of aquarium tank parameters. 

Anubias Heterophylla is a bold green in hue and its leaves are fairly large with a slight wave. It has the potential to grow much larger when kept in its emersed state and will stay on the smaller side when kept in an aquarium fully submerged. Like other Anubias, Bucephalandra and Java Ferns, Anubias Heterophylla does best when attached securely to aquarium hardscape such as aquascaping stones or aquarium driftwood. Alternatively, it can also be placed between cracks in an aquascape layout and it will attach itself overtime. Care should be taken to ensure its roots are not glued when attaching as this can promote the rotting of the plant. Anubias benefits from consistent fertilization but light requirements are minimal as its leaves are susceptible to algae growth when placed under high lighting. CO2 is optional but can promote faster growth and robust leaves when used.
