I love this plant. but like the description says...VERY SLOW GROWER. You'll be lucky if you get 1 leaf a week. It stays alive really well so more then likely you'll end up doing something really bad to kill it before you ever get a chance to see it's beauty when grown really well. I've see this tied to a small piece of drift wood with the roots hanging down. Let me tell you it's a beautiful sight. the owner said it took me years to get it like that though.

beautiful addition to any aquarium, especially a low tech one. It grows tiny, but don't expect it to form a carpet as it grows very slowly. Anubias species are the best plants for begginers.

This is an adorable little plant that did great in my 2.5g betta tank (2 9W 6500K bulbs). I left it floating and it was growing new leaves fairly quickly. Eventually, my betta was having bouts of fin rot so I decided to relocated the plant to a 30g and attached it to a big lava rock while he was recovering. In the new setup, the plant was getting covered in hair algae and now has all this staghorn algae attached to it. Hopeful with the addition of a Siamese Algae Eater and some Japonica shrimp this or next week, the algae problems with be taken care of.

Very pretty plant if you can keep the algae off of it.

If you get algae on your anubias, just soak it in a bucket of 1:4 bleach water for a minute or two, rinse well, then soak in water dechlorinator for a minute.

One of my first plants was anubias barteri var nana. I liked that plant so much that I purchased the 'petite' version. Both are really great plants, are great for anyone from beginners to the advanced, and are great for small tanks. In the US, the petites are more expensive because of their slow growth rate and high demand. However, this little plant is worth the price!

Great little hardy plant. I've had mine for over a year and they grow slowly, but I did notice they grow faster with the roots exposed. Nerite snails have always keep the algae off the leaves

Very awesome plant. Bought one from petsmart attached to a lava rock when they were on sale. Split into 4 different plants and they are all attached to driftwood. Took them a long time to form new roots but now are growing a new leaf maybe once per 2 weeks. Good growth in an extremely low-tech tank with no ferts/c02! Wish I would have bought another!

Excellent, hardy plant. I was lucky enough to find one in a local lfs for $5! I accidentally broke the rhizome in half while trying to attach to my driftwood (tried to tie it down without taking the driftwood out like an idiot). I ended up getting both pieces tied down. The plant lost a few leaves at first, but now both halves are doing well and have almost reached the size of the original plant. Tough plant and great looking! I highly recommend to all hobbyists, beginners or advanced.

I have bought 6-7 rhizomes of this for 10 dollars. Its expensive but worth the price. It looks great if piled in a rock. Very good also in tree forms.

I just planted two rhizomes last night and buried the rhizome in Flourite Black Sand. When I found out that you're not supposed to bury the rhizome completely, I pulled mine up and barricaded them down with 3 medium sized stones. But just over the night of being buried I noticed 2 brand new white thick roots about half a cm long. I take that as a good sign - they must take more nutrients from the substrate, but the pet store I bought them from had the rhizome buried in thick gravel and had them suspended like that for at least 2 months.
