Anubias are wonderful beginner plants, doing well in a wide range of conditions. Endemic to Africa they can be found growing in streams, rivers, and even marshes. Preferring more subdued lighting, their genus gets its name from the Egyptian god Anubis, from often being found growing in shaded areas.
Anubias are rather slow growers, with ideal conditions they typically will grow a new leaf every 3 weeks or so. You can get anubias to grow faster under high lighting conditions with injected CO2.
Anubias can be planted in a wide variety of ways, typically preferring being attached to a surface allowing water to flow over their roots. When planting anubias in substrate take care not to bury the rhizome of the plant, the rhizome is the thickest part of the plant where the leaves and roots sprout from.

I purchased 6 anubias nana petite to create the look of an underwater tree with some manzanita and spiderwood(also aquited sometime back from the co-op) for a 20g that I was attempting to aquascape. The plants were overflowing their mini pots and were(and still are) very healthy. I am pleased with the look I was able to acheive and plan on getting more from them.
The plants came in much larger than I expected. There are so many leaves on them. The nana petite makes a great foreground plant!
Healthy beautiful little plant.
Got enough in one container that I was able to break it up into all the places I wanted to cover in my 10 gallon (about 6). All but 1 are doing great (which I think I tied on too tight to begin with) and are sprouting new leaves already!
This was the first petite anubias I have found that was not infected with anubias rot. After one month, it is quite healthy!
