Anubias Lanceolata (Mega Hardy Background Aquarium Plant)
NOTE: These plants came in to us on 9-28. You might see a slight mark on a leaf here and there...They are still amazing plants. (see photos)
These have a great redish stem to them follow up by a nice thick green leaf. The leaves are 6 inches or more long. These Anubias Lanceolata are going to make your back ground POP. The nice thing with anubias is that it can handle the rougher plant eating cichlids. Grab some of these at the insane low price of only $7.95.
Difficulty: On a scale from 1-10. 1 being you can grow it in a toilet and 10 being impossible. I give the Lanceolata a 1. It's like most Anubias, Hardy and can handle the beginner life.
Lighting: Enjoys Moderate lighting but can do just fine in a low light set-up.

Was expecting a larger amount of healthy roots. After trimming away the dead ones there were only a handful left. The plants were a bit shorter than expected too. A month later starting to see some new root growth. Only lost one leaf. I think they will be fine. Same with Anubias Afzelii. Maybe it has something to do with ordering plants in the winter?
Order came with extra anubius rhizomes and look forward to find out what they are.
Ordered one plant and received two rhizomes with two mature leaves each and some new growth. New growth is already taking off. Can’t wait till this plant fills in.
I've never kept Anubias before...but wow....just wow! I resuscitated my old 44 gallon right before Thanksgiving (and since I was starting from scratch, I decided to go dirted). I placed another order on Black Friday and got 3 of the Lanceolata. A month later, all 3 have at least 2 new leaves that are already a couple inches long.
Like the thick stems, plants are doing ok now, will see how they are doing later!
