Plant Sizes

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

Our Delivery Promise to you

If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.

If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

Anubias congensis is a popular aquatic plant that is native to the Congo basin in Central Africa. It is often used in aquariums as a decorative plant because of its unique appearance and ease of care.

This plant is known for its dark green, heart-shaped leaves that grow on long, thick stems. The leaves are leathery and have a shiny, waxy appearance. Anubias congensis is a slow-growing plant that can reach a height of up to 16 inches, making it suitable for both large and small aquariums.

One of the most interesting facts about Anubias congensis is that it has a symbiotic relationship with certain fish species. The leaves of the plant are covered in a thin layer of mucus, which attracts a specific type of fish known as the Anubias barteri fish. These fish feed on the mucus, which helps to keep the leaves clean and free from debris.

Another unusual fact about Anubias congensis is that it is a highly adaptable plant that can survive in a wide range of water conditions. It can grow in low light environments and is not demanding when it comes to water quality. This makes it an ideal plant for beginners or those who are looking for a low-maintenance addition to their aquarium.

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
