Anubias hetrophylla is one of our largest Anubias plants. A. heterophylla is a species belonging to the Aroid genus Anubias. It was first described scientifically by Adolf Engler in 1879. This plant can be grown fully submersed under water. We like to use this plant on branching driftwood or along the background attached to stones. It is especially great for shrimp tanks, community aquariums, and many styles of aquarium aquascapes. Customers with large aquariums or paludarium style systems love the large leaves of A. heterophylla. For optimal growth, tie the plant to wood or rocks. SubstrateSource potted plants are grown in 2-inch slotted or mesh plastic pots. The pots are made out of recycled plastic. Potted plants are grown without soil in rockwool media. The rockwool media allows the plants to grow in a clean, soil-free environment, ready to ship. To prepare your plant for the aquarium, first gently remove the pot and peel away the rockwool media. Tie the Anubias to an anchor (soaked driftwood, stone, or other decoration item.
