Anubias Barteri (Var. Nana)

Updated: September 30, 2022 | Aquarium Plants

The Anubias Nana is one of the most popular aquarium plants. It’s extremely beginner-friendly because it’s undemanding and slow-growing. You can put it in almost any water condition, and it’ll adapt. Occasionally it will flower and can last for a few weeks.

A common issue is algae growth on the leaves because of how slowly it grows. I’d recommend placing it in a shaded area, not directly in the light. If you have no hardscape to place it under, you can lower the amount of time your light is on.
