How to Care for Anubias Hastifolia
Anubias Hastifolia is easy to care for. The plant is hardy and adaptable. It will do well in most aquariums, including those housing large and plant-eating fish as its leathery leaves are tough and sturdy.

It is a suitable plant for beginners.

Anubias Hastifolia can grow 8 to 12 inches under good conditions. For this reason, it is a great plant for the background areas of the aquarium. Its size and uniquely shaped leaves make this plant an ideal candidate for a centerpiece or focal plant in the aquarium. Anubias Hastifolia can be planted in the substrate but its rhizome (the thick horizontal root) should not be buried under the substrate.
Anubias Hastifolia is also available potted.
