Anubias nana ´Mini Kirin´


Anubias 'Kirin Mini' is a small variety of the 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 creature is covered with scales - perhaps a reference to the strongly curled leaf edges. Due to its very small size, this novelty is particularly suitable for smaller aquariums and recommended for detailed aquascaping layouts. As a typical hanging plant, it grows ideally tied or glued to wood roots and various rocks. Our Dennerle Plants LIQUID or LIQIUD PLUS liquid fertilizer optimally promotes healthy growth.
