  • West Africa is the home of many Anubias, including this one.

    The 5-10 cm big triangular leaves with long leaf stems make Anubias gracilis one of the most elegant.
    It is hardy and sturdy – a good starter plant. The plant can grow on stones and roots or be planted into the bottom layer. If planted into the bottom layer, make sure not to cover the rhizome from which leaves and roots grow, or else the plant will rot and die.

    Anubias gracilis can grow over the surface of the aquarium, but please note that the plant grows to be significantly bigger over water.
