Anubias nana 'Bonsai'


Anubias barteri var. nana 'Bonsai', which is the correct botanical name, is the dwarf form of the variety nana. Due to its size, this miniature plant is very often used in smaller aquariums and generally in aquascaping.

An attractive eye-catcher from our plant production is the "Bonsai Palm", for which only natural materials such as tonkin sticks, a type of bamboo, as well as palm fibers are used.

With the Bonsai Palm you can create unusual and fascinating underwater landscapes, especially in small nano aquariums. A group with several palms looks particularly spectacular. Tip: Always use an odd number of bonsai palms - e.g. 3 or 5 palms and place them at different heights.
