Hey guys, is this a anubias nana "petite" or no? the rhizome rotted away, but now it is better, and has even grown some new leaves. The leaves are about the size of a marble.
I have noticed this as well I bought a bunch about 7 or so months ago at a club auction and they were from different sources and some are tiny not even as big as a dime and some of the other plants are the size of a nickel. I have "golden" variety of anubias and the bigger leafed "petite" are not much smaller than the "golden" now but a few of them are still staying small though.At least to me, petite and regular nana does not matter too much anymore.
I usually get petite at first, and several months/ a year later I end up with a nana. They just grow bigger (not only longer rhizome and many leaves) than the first time I got them. This case also happens to many of my friends over here. The genetics could be lead to a common source I suppose.
In the US I cannot say much. Perhaps you guys are lucky enough to get the real petite gene for permanent.
I bought it this way about 7 or 8 months ago as a new variety called Golden the is definitely a lack of care for those over the past 4 months thats why there is algae but thats all that has changed on the plant other than new leaf growth. I actually bought it from Curt the owner of plantgeek.net at my clubs auction.
