Anubias sp. 'Nangi' - Pot
- Characteristic dark green leaves with long point
- Hybrid of Anubias barteri var. nana and Anubias gilletii
- Live freshwater aquarium plant with SubstrateSource Anubias sp. Care Guide included
Nangi is reminiscent of A. congensis in leaf shape, and can develop textured leaves like A. barteri 'Coffeefolia' when grown emergent (above the water line). It does not require intense lighting, substrate or CO2 to thrive.
This hybrid of Anubias barteri 'Nana' and Anubias gilletii is often used in cichlid and goldfish tanks. Like its Anubias cousins, this freshwater aquatic plant has robust, green leaves that are tolerant to picking by herbivorous fish.
Though it can be planted into substrate, Anubias sp. 'Nangi' prefers to be tied to hardscape. If you do choose to plant Nangi, be sure to keep its rhizome exposed, above your substrate line. Place the plant in an area with good water flow to prevent algae growth on its slow-growing leaves. In ideal conditions, Anubias sp. Nangi will flower, though propagation in aquariums is done through rhizome growth.
