Anubias lanceolata, also known as Anubias Afzelii is a stunning hardy aquatic plant that in nature can be found in most Western African countries like Cape Verde, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, etc. to name a few.
The most interesting feature of this particular anubias variety is its leaves. The sharp pointy leaf it has quite uncommon in most anubias species. They also have very dark greenish leaves when emersed and darkness reduces when submerged underwater. Generally, under natural conditions, their leaf has a length of around 5 cms in length. If you are looking for a compact yet visible plant which doesn’t take much space, then anubias lanceolata would be one of the perfect choices. They can be used as a central specimen in both your aquariums and terrarium. Since they are a hardy species, you can add them in bottle aquariums or jar terrariums, or any sort of modern aquariums of your interest.
Anubias afzelii has been found to have a rhizome length of up to 50 cms in wild. If you also take care of it and mimick wild-like atmospheric conditions, then you too may achieve this. It’s all about the waiting, that we all aquarists hardy have; isn’t it!
Remember to keep not embed rhizomes in soil or any matter. If it’s done, there is a high chance that you may actually end up killing your rare anubias lanceolata. They kind of melt and eventually die off. Also, take care not to suddenly change water temperature or pH or any other important parameters, this too can cause rhizome melting. Though carbon dioxide injection is necessary, it helps plants to grow. Proper lighting is also important. Yet we need to be cautious not to overlight as it’s sort of a shade-loving plant too; remember it comes from the shady forests of Africa!
It’s always better to keep this plant tied to a hardwood or stone to have better results. For example, their growth improves; flowers faster; rhizome length and leaf size increase faster and what not! Anubias enjoy “settlement”; only once they feel settled, they grow. That’s its true nature. It’s true for all anubias varieties in general. We himadri aquatics is one of the only few firms out there who have mastered commercial production of anubias lanceolata.
