overview
Distinct arrowhead-shaped leaves add drama to any aquarium aquascape. Anubias hastifolia also has longer stalks than other smaller members of the Anubias genus. The combination of longer stalks and unique leaves gives this plant a more pronounced look when placed amidst other plants in the aquarium mid-ground. Like other Anubias plant species, however, this variety is hardy, relatively undemanding, and robust under ideal growing conditions.

Native to the tropical regions of Africa, these flowering plant species are primarily found in rivers, streams, and marshes. Anubias plants are ideal when planted in substrate or placed on harder surfaces, such as rocks or driftwood. They have medium light requirements but need regular fertilization with iron-based supplements for optimal growth. Interestingly, most Anubias plants do not respond to CO2 supplementation.

Considered a slow grower, members of the Anubias genus should not be placed in high light areas of your system to help prevent excessive algae growth on the leaves. Overall, however, Anubias hastifolia is very adaptable to a wide range of pH, water hardness, and lighting conditions. Most herbivorous fish also tend to leave Anubias plants alone, which makes them great additions to any freshwater system, especially cichlid and goldfish aquariums.

Propagation is relative easy with cuttings. To ensure optimal growth if planted in substrate, however, ensure the rhizome of divided plants is always above the substrate. Plants can also be grown emersed, which also makes them an ideal plant for paludariums or terrariums.
