    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.

    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.

    Anubias nana is a small, slow-growing aquarium plant that is native to the tropical regions of West Africa. It is a popular plant among aquarium enthusiasts because of its attractive appearance and ease of care. Anubias nana is a member of the Araceae family and is characterized by its thick, dark green leaves, which grow up to 6cm long and 3cm wide.

    Anubias nana is an ideal plant for aquariums as it requires low to moderate lighting and does not need CO2 injection. It can be planted in aquarium substrate or attached to rocks or driftwood. The plant prefers slightly acidic to neutral water and a temperature range of 22-28°C. Anubias nana is a slow-growing plant and may take several months to fully establish in an aquarium.

    Anubias nana can be propagated by dividing the rhizome, which is the thick stem that connects the plant's leaves to the roots. The rhizome should be carefully separated into smaller sections, each with several leaves and roots, and then replanted. The newly propagated plant should be anchored to the substrate or attached to rocks or driftwood.

    In addition to its aesthetic value, Anubias nana also provides a range of benefits to aquarium inhabitants. The plant provides shelter and hiding places for fish and other aquatic creatures, and can also help to maintain good water quality by absorbing excess nutrients and producing oxygen through photosynthesis.

    Overall, Anubias nana is an attractive and low-maintenance plant that is well-suited to aquariums of all sizes. Its ease of care and ability to thrive in a range of conditions make it a popular choice for both novice and experienced aquarium keepers.

      Really impressed with the last lots of plants I got


      Great product and quick delivery


      Massive plant came. I thought nana was supposed to be small ahah. I trimmed it to my liking and it’s doing well but I heard it takes a while to die if it’s not happy so let’s see. Fingers crossed

      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.
