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.

What can I say.. Still alive and healthy looking.. :^)
Came reasonably quick and very happy with my customer service help involving another part of my order.
Plant came and was wrapped perfectly. I've had some issues with other sellers not knowing how to ship. Plant looks great!
Love the vertical growth of this Anubis. Arrived and transferred well into the tank. Was able to get two nice sized plants when the pot was removed. Both have showed new growth in the past 30 days in my low tech tank with 7.8 pH hard tap water.
Bigger than I expected! And there ended up being two in the pot! Love them!
