Introducing the robust and versatile Anubias Nana Petite—an aquarium plant that's a powerhouse of resilience and aesthetic appeal. A miniature version of the beloved Anubias Nana, this petite wonder boasts leaves that measure a mere 1/4" to 1/2" in size. Its compact dimensions make it the perfect addition to any corner of your aquarium, seamlessly blending into both foreground and background scenarios as a charming accent plant.

Similar to its Anubias siblings, Anubias Nana Petite is a flexible performer, easily attaching itself to driftwood or rocks for a visually stunning display. Whether you choose to plant it or attach it, just ensure that the horizontal rhizome or stem remains above the substrate for optimal growth.

Propagation is a breeze with this petite gem. A simple snip of the rhizome into smaller sections is all it takes to multiply its beauty. For the best results, aim for 2-3 leaves per section, and watch as your tank transforms into a lush aquatic paradise.
