What's your favorite anubias


Recommended Posts

I think anubais is my favorite plant I've kept so far I have nana, coffeefolia, barteri, nangi, and currently waiting on golden and nana petite to arrive this week. The plant is just so easy to keep and it's exciting to see a new leaf starting or to see it flower. If I had to choose I think so far my favorite would be barteri.

I have to go with the tried and true nana here. Had a beautiful 3 foot long one in my tank until a certain goldfish who shalt not be named ATE  IT DOWN TO THE RHIZOME

 

It managed to come back, but you could imagine my disdain when I got back home from school.

That's another thing I like about them is they seem like very hardy plants.

A. nana ‘Petite Golden’ is my current favorite but I fairly recently got some A. hastifolia and it’s terrific!  I really like the leaf shape - it’s the only Anubias I’ve seen that has a significantly different leaf shape with its arrowhead, almost lobed shape (as compared to narrow vs rounded).

 

I was just reading about hastafolia I'm trying to figure out exactly how many anubias varients there are seems like there are a bunch!

The anubias pinto is one of my favorites! There is a hobbyist in my area that is tissue culturing their own plants and then later selling them on his website. One of the plants he is playing around with is the anubais pinto. I'm excited because once he starts selling them, perhaps he will be able to get the price down.

But my favorite anubias that I own is the anubias golden coin. I currently have mine floating in my betta tank. I was going to plant it, but my betta named hugo seems to really like resting on it.

There are so many Anubias varieties with such a wide range of forms out there these days, a lot of them still very new and rare. I just recently learnt about Anubias 'jalapeño' and Anubias 'stardust', both look beautiful. Also some hybrid species varieties popping up as well. 

I have to Google these now I love the jalapeno name
