Anubias dwarf, Anubias Barter, Anubias Nana: care

Anubias dwarf grows on the banks of rivers and in swamps. Most of the life is under water, the roots rarely root in the ground, often just attached to the stones.

It grows up to 10-12 cm in height, the rhizome is branched, creeping, covered with leaves. The stem is short, the leaves are dark green, up to 3-4 cm wide, up to 4-8 cm long, petiole shorter than a leaf blade, up to 3-5 cm long.

Anubias is a foreground plant, it is better to plant dwarf anubias in an aquarium in a small group, fixing the rhizome on a snag, or deepening it in the ground. It grows very slowly, both in water and in air, but at the same time it covers the entire ground with a dense green carpet, in which some fish like to hide.

Thanks to the hard leaves, Anubias dwarf can be placed in an aquarium with cichlids, they will not harm him.

Fluorescent lamps are suitable for plant lighting, the power is selected at the rate of 0.3 watts per liter for T8 lamps, since the plant is shade-loving, it can be planted in deep aquariums. If you illuminate it with too bright light, algae appears on Anubias and spoils its appearance.

The length of the daylight hours is 12 hours, while at the same time try to avoid direct sunlight on the aquarium.

Water parameters for this plant:

  • hardness: 2-15 ° W;
  • pH: 6-7.5;
  • temperature 22-28 ° C.
  • Clean water and weekly substitution are the key to good growth of dwarf Anubias. In no case do not allow the temperature in the aquarium to drop to 20 degrees and below – this leads to a stunted plant growth.

For dwarf Anubias, shallow soil or large river sand is necessary, when planting, only the roots deepen into the soil, and the rhizome itself remains on the surface and eventually grows strongly forming the sole on which the plant holds above the soil. Since the root system does not penetrate deep into the soil, its layer can be made relatively small.

Mineral fertilizing plant does not require enough silted soil.

In the aquarium, the dwarf anubias multiplies by processes that form on the rhizome, when the daughter plant has 4-5 leaves, it can be separated and transplanted to a new place.

Dwarf Anubias can be grown in a paludarium and a wet greenhouse in the soil of peat, humus, turfy soil and sand at a temperature of 26-30 degrees.
