My two new babies

anubias variegated nana


anubias ellipticus - this is one of my favorite anubias. I had to trim all the older leaves off since it came with a smaller rhizhome and the leaves were tipping the plant over. The two leaves shown here are new growth.

I am thinking I need to do something for water movement, but I am not sure what. My water looks like liquid mud at the moment. I was thinking of making a false bottom and putting a small power head in the water and maybe a heater for the winter. Not sure yet though.

If temp goes below 70 in the winter, you definitely need a heater. My plants didn't grow very well in the winter without a heater. Keeping a heater will also help you maintain the humidity level

Wow very cool. Do you know is that variegation more or less stable?

I never heard of A. ellipticus before.

Looking around a bit I just ran into this page...

http://toptropicals.com/html/toptrop...anubias_en.htm

That's more pictures than I ahve seen anywhere else. I guess there are at least two Russian experts on Anubias. I think it is another dude who has that blog.

That is what I was thinking. I was going to try to keep the temp at about 80*F or so. I noticed the higher the temp, the higher the humidity. I am also thinking of putting in a false bottom so I can have more water in the tub. I figure that would also help with the humidity.

How warm can you keep the water in the tank without it effecting the plants

High 80. Crypt leaves are prone to melting in higher temperatures. Especially the area where the leave make contact with other leaves

I was wondering about that, I put a small heater in my setup and it was keeping the water about 85 the air temp around 78-80 and humidity at 100%.
