Anubias nana 'Kirin'


The new Anubias 'Kirin' is a beautiful cultivated form of the dwarf spear leaf. The name Kirin comes from East Asia and describes a dragon-like mythical creature with one or two horns. The skin of this imaginary animal is covered with scales - perhaps a reference to the strongly curled leaf edges. Like all Anubias, this novelty is undemanding in care and particularly hardy. Mounted on stones or roots, the variety 'Kirin' is a new highlight for every plant lover!
