Care & Maintenance for Anubias Lanceolata
Anubias Lanceolata is a highly adaptable and undemanding aquarium plant. As is true for most anubias, lighting and water parameters are not very important. The plant does not have any special requirements. It's a great beginner plant and will grow well in most aquarium setups.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate

Anubias Lanceolata can be planted in substrate but its rhizome (the thick part of the root system) must stay above the substrate, otherwise the root system will decay and the plant will eventually die. It can also be attached to hard surfaces such as rocks or driftwood. As its leaves are strong and sturdy, Anubias Lanceolata can be used in tanks with boisterous or herbivorous fish.
Anubias Lanceolata is also available bareroot.
