Anubias Nana Thick Leaf is a less common variant of Anubias. This particular variation features small, rounded dark green foliage that is slightly wavy. Just like other Anubias, it is also very hardy and easy to keep making it ideal for all hobbyist levels. Anubias Thick Leaf will appreciate an aquarium tank with good circulation as this aquatic plant can be susceptible to algae growth on its leaves, but can adapt to almost any planted aquarium tank and will survive in a range of environments. If given optimal conditions, this aquatic plant will grow quicker and larger. Also like other species of Anubias, Anubias Thick Leaf is a slow grower, but patience is rewarded. As an epiphyte, this aquatic plant does best when attached to a hard surface such as aquarium driftwood or rocks. It can also be wedged into cracks available within the hardscape layout. Another added benefit of this plant is that herbivorous fish such as goldfish species rarely munch on it!
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.
