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.

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.

Anubias heterophylla is a popular aquatic plant among aquarium enthusiasts due to its attractive appearance and easy maintenance. It is a species of the genus Anubias, which belongs to the family Araceae. Anubias heterophylla is native to West Africa, where it grows in the shaded areas of streams and rivers.

The leaves of Anubias heterophylla are elongated and have a deep green color. They can grow up to 30 cm in length, and 5 cm in width. The plant can thrive in a range of water conditions, including soft and hard water, and a pH range of 6 to 8. It prefers moderate lighting and can tolerate low light conditions as well. It can be grown submerged in aquariums, or emerged in a paludarium or terrarium.

Anubias heterophylla is an easy plant to maintain and propagate. It can be attached to rocks or driftwood using fishing line or aquarium glue. The plant grows slowly and does not require frequent pruning. It can be propagated by dividing the rhizome, which is the horizontal stem that grows above the substrate. New plants will grow from the divided rhizome, and can be re-attached to rocks or driftwood.

Anubias heterophylla is a popular choice for aquariums because it provides a natural and aesthetically pleasing environment for fish and other aquatic animals. It is also known to absorb excess nutrients from the water, which helps to reduce algae growth. Overall, Anubias heterophylla is a great addition to any aquarium, and its ease of maintenance makes it a suitable choice for beginners and experienced aquarium keepers alike.

Beautiful plant for my aquarium

Graham Snashall
Super Plant

Well established plant with fantastic root system. Early days, but it is wedged onto some Spiderwood and appears to be doing well.

Arrived on time and a good size. It’s thriving in our aquarium.

Excellent quality

Beautiful looking plant, I should have read the description properly as its massive! Let's see how it copes in my 34 litre with one of the leaves hanging out the top of the water!

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.
