Description: Anubias hastifolia has longer stalks than other smaller members of the Anubias genus with arrowhead-shaped green leaves. Like other Anubias species, this plant is hardy and relatively undemanding. Most herbivorous fish also tend to leave Anubias plants alone as it has very tough and robust leaves, so it could be a good choice for an African Cichlid or a Goldfish aquarium. It is best planted in a shady spot or low light to restrict algae growth on the leaves. Don’t put the 1,5 cm thick rhizome in the substrate when planting, instead place on harder surfaces, such as rocks or driftwood and the plant will grow an extensive root system, which will anchor it. This robust marsh plant has only a limited adaptability to the continuous submersed conditions within the aquarium. Cultivation in spacious paludariums however is recommended. Also Anubias hastifolia grow much slower underwater. Damaged leaves will not repair themselves, simply prune them back as, this will also encourage new leaf growth. Anubias hastifolia need regular fertilization with iron-based supplements for optimal growth. Propagation of Anubias hastifolia is relative easy with rhizome division.
