Description[edit]

This plant's long-stemmed dark green leave blades are less than 5 times as long as wide, 1.5-9 cm broad (usually broader than 3.5 cm) and 6-21 cm long. The petioles are 3-35 cm long, from 0.5-1.5 times as long as the blade.

Cultivation[edit]

Like most Anubias species, this plant grows well partially and fully submersed and the rhizome must be above the substrate, attached to rocks or wood. It grows well in a range of lighting and prefers a temperature range of 22-28 degrees C. It can be propagated by dividing the rhizome or by separating side shoots.
