Anubias barteri var. nana on a Bogwood

Offering 1 (one) pot of Anubias barteri var. nana «Bonsai». It's a tiny, attractive plant which thrives in all conditions. It grows slowly, and the leaves survive for several years. The best result is achieved by planting on a stone or tree root. Fishing line can be used to attach the plant until it gains a hold. If planted on the bottom the rhizome must not be covered because it tends to rot. It flowers frequently under water. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish. This rosette plant has beautiful dark green leaves in low, handsome clumps. They usually have diagonal lines running from the centre vein to the leaf perimeter. Because it grows well from cuttings, you can usually reproduce it easily. Under correct water conditions, the Anubias barteri var. nana «Bonsai» propagates by side shoots on the rhizome, causing rhizome division. The image is an actual photograph of the offered plant. It’s a very well rooted and established plant.
