Anubias (Anubias)

It is not surprising that many species grow slowly in the aquarium. Leathery leaves, departing from the creeping rhizome, remain green for several years. Propagated by dividing the rhizome, which is broken into pieces with 3-5 leaves. Leafless areas of rhizomes are allowed to float until the formation of roots and leaf germination. Young plants are not recommended soils with an excess of organic matter, because at the same time the root system develops poorly. Temperature 23-28°C, pH 6-7. The light is diffused. Anubias don’t like frequent transplants.

As a result of crusio’s revision, conducted in 1979, it was established that the genus unites 8 species; in addition to those listed below, anubias gigantea, anubias gilletti, anubias slender (anubias gracilis), anubias spear-leaved (Anubias gastifolia), anubias raznolistny (anubias getero-phylla), anubias Pinerta (anubias rupaegtii).
