Anubias Afzelii is another form of Anubias that has entered the hobby within the last few years. Its leaves are more narrow then Nana's, but they are longer. Anubias Afzelii also has a red rhizome which can add some nice color to a tank. This plant grows by having a horizontal rhizome and producing vertical leaves. When planting the Anubias Afzelii, do not bury the rhizome in your substrate. Only the roots, or attach it to driftwood or rocks. You can propagate this plant by cutting the rhizome in half and moving the cutting to another area. This will allow both cuttings to keep growing.Much like other Anubias, Anubias Afzelii can be easily attached to driftwood or rocks. You can also plant Afezelii, however, make sure the horizontal rhizome or stem is above the substrate. It can also be easily propagated by cutting the rhizome into smaller sections. We recommend leaving 2-3 leaves per section.
