Wow I am super jealous! I have been wanting a white anubias for a very long time! From what I have read on anubias you will have to cut the rhizome and it should be fine, but don't quote me on this! There are a few people on here that offer these up for sale from time to time, you could probably send them a PM if they don't respond and they could give you more informative advice. Just wanted to say it again, amazing! Super Jealous!! If you do split it or happen to sell off a tiny piece let me know what kinda price you are looking for.
Well, well, well! Look who just chimed in!
Yes, it is growing emersed.
So, if the front of the plant is cut off and put in its own pot and the base(original portion) is left in the pot, as is, then the front will grow forward in the new pot and the base will develop shoots off the sides??
Will the base develop just one new shoot or will several offshoots develop?
I paid so much for the original (it was worth every penny) that I do not want to mess it up. This plant is petite in size but stands out like a glittering diamond in the emersed tank it is growing in.
Bills got all the good stuff! What substrate do you have these in Bill? Mine has some leaves that are all white, some with green specs. Yours is dominantly white, what kinda light you using? Sorry bud, i know im always hounding you with questions lol
The plant is in a pot of standard potting mix composed of mostly Miracle Gro Organic Top Soil, some earthworm castings, a little red clay, fine silica sand and that is about it. It was planted in that. A little gravel top dressing was added and the rhizome lifted just a touch so it rests on the top dressing.
It is grown emersed and fertilized every 2 to 3 weeks along with all the Crypts. The lighting is two T5s about 16" above the surface of the substrate.
It is that simple.
Wish I had the guts to attempt messing with this thing for propagation purposes.
Once you get one of these things, you admiration for it increases. They are superb little jewels that really command attention.
Steve drops in from Hawaii every few weeks just to look see it.
