Anubias nana 'Bonsai'


The miniature form of the dwarf spear leaf is a real asset to any aquascape. In terms of cultivation and care it is just as robust as the original, but needs a little more light to produce a lovely, compact mound. This dwarf form can be used in a 10 L Nano Cube or larger. These plants have a most natural appearance when tied to delicate roots or driftwood. Red swamp wood is perfectly suited to this purpose. Alternatively, showcase your ‚bonsai’ Anubias on decorative rocks.
