Anubias nana Mini
This is by far the smallest Anubias I have ever seen and if you have a quick look at the pictures below you will see just how small the leaves are! Quite incredible really. The number of leaves that are packed into Anubias nana Mini is really amazing because it’s absolutely loaded.
The pot is the usual 5.5cm in diameter so no surprises there and Anubias nana Mini doesn’t throw any punches there either because like the rest of its family it’s dead easy to grow. Because Anubias nana Mini is a slow growing aquarium plant it naturally prefers a low tech tank so anything where the lighting is relatively low and not on for too long every day. It’s 100% fine without pressurised CO2, but similarly if you do have it, it will bring the plant on quicker assuming you’re using lots of fertilisers.
Anubias nana Mini should be tied onto wood or rock – just like the other Anubias the reason for this is simple – if you planted it in the substrate, the rhyzome would rot and the plant would die.
Suitable for beginners and up, this delightful aquarium plant is unchallenging, rewarding and easy to grow. Looks best in aquariums which are smaller due to the leaf size so if you have a nano aquarium (say 30-40L is size) then it will look a pretty picture.
