Anubias Nana Petite, also known as Anubias barteri var. Nana Petite, is a small and popular aquatic plant in the aquarium hobby. It is a variation of the Anubias barteri species, which is native to West Africa. Anubias Nana Petite is a hybrid or naturally occurring variant of the original Anubias Nana, but it is distinct due to its smaller size and more compact growth.
Here are some key features and characteristics of Anubias Nana Petite:
- Size: Anubias Nana Petite is notably smaller than the regular Anubias Nana. Its leaves are typically no more than half an inch to an inch in size. This diminutive size makes it an excellent choice for small aquariums or aquascapes, as well as for creating intricate details in larger setups.
- Growth: The plant is a slow grower, which means it doesn’t require frequent trimming or maintenance. Its slow growth rate also makes it suitable for low-tech aquariums or for aquarists who prefer low-maintenance plants.
- Appearance: Anubias Nana Petite has dark green, heart-shaped leaves with a waxy texture. The leaves are attached to thick stems (rhizomes) that should not be buried in the substrate but instead, be attached to rocks or driftwood. Burying the rhizome can lead to rotting and damage to the plant.
- Low light tolerance: This plant is known for its adaptability to various light conditions. It can thrive in low to moderate lighting, making it suitable for aquariums without intense artificial lighting or in tanks with taller plants that provide some shading.
- Water parameters: Anubias Nana Petite can tolerate a wide range of water parameters, which makes it suitable for various aquarium setups. However, it thrives best in slightly acidic to slightly alkaline water (pH around 6.0-7.5) and at temperatures between 72°F to 82°F (22°C to 28°C).
- Propagation: Like other Anubias species, Anubias Nana Petite can be propagated by dividing the rhizome into smaller sections, each with a few healthy leaves and roots. These new sections can then be attached to rocks or driftwood to grow into separate plants.
Anubias Nana Petite is a popular choice for aquascaping due to its small size, low maintenance requirements, and ability to add attractive greenery to any aquarium setup. It can be used as a foreground, mid-ground, or even as a background plant, depending on the aquarium’s size and layout.
