Scientific Name: Anubias barteri var. Congensis
Care Level: Easy
Temperature Range: 68° - 80°F
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.

Ordered 2 and both came in in good shape and are growing slowly but surely.
I originally bought this plant about a year ago and I LOVED IT! I ordered it again this week and it came in just as good. Very happy with the plants Aqaurium Co-op sells!
Came in great condition. Wanted a different type of Anubis, so I like the fact that this will get taller.
Was very happy to receive my shipment at the expected date and for the plants to be so healthy! I was so embarrassed at the horrible quality of the plants I had previously bought at a local chain store in comparison to these which I received from Aquarium Coop!
I would rather support Cory than petco or petsmart. The plant came in lusious green alive well rooted amazing.
