Anubias heterophylla


The name heterophylla means: different-leaved, which refers to the different leaf shapes. It is a larger growing species that is very suitable for aquarium culture. The leaves are slightly lighter in color than other Anubias species and have a strongly pronounced leaf vein. With a growth height up to 60cm, the location in the background is recommended. Normal lighting is perfectly adequate for the fairly slow growth. Like all Anubias plants, this species has good adaptability to water quality.
