Emersed Anubias barteri not doing well


I got an Anubias barteri tied to a piece of wood. In the LFS, it was sold in a plastic bag. As far as I know, it came from a local farm that grow them emerged or emersed. Also, I am in the tropic, so ambient temperature and humidity are more or less tropical.

When I brought it home, it looks dried and wrinkled. I thought it has been out of the water for too long. But over time, in some leaves it might got a bit better, but in some leaves, I think it doesn't.





The tank is newly setup. Substrate is Seachem Fluorite, and I just dose Seachem Flourish comprehensive when I put the plant in. The plant has been in the tank of 2-3 days.

What is happening here? Too much light? Too dry? Or the plant is just acclimating? What should I do here?

Thanks.

Looks a little dehydrated to me. However, it may simply be adjusting. You could wait it out and see if you get new growth.

I think they like very high humidity. Is this an open top tank? If so you might try covering the tank with a piece of glass or acrylic. You mentioned that you are in the tropics so ambient humidity should be pretty high already. Since you've only had the plant 2-3 days, if it were me I'd wait it out a little longer before taking action.

It is in an open top tank, but I can't cover it as the plants protrude above the tank.

I'm suppose I'll give it some time. Thanks.
