Description

Anubias gracilis is a bigger Anubias species that occurs as a seasonally flooded plant along rainforest rivers of West Africa. With its triangular leaf blades and long, slender petioles it is an especially elegant Anubias species.

The leaf blades reach a length of about 5-10 cm when the plant is grown under water. It is suited as an epiphyte for the hardscape. However, it can also be planted in the bottom layer as long as the stout, thick rhizome is not buried into the ground, otherwise the plant will rot.

This Anubias is a robust, undemanding, sturdy plant, recommendable for beginner aquariums as well as cichlid tanks. Anubias gracilis can grow out of the water in shallow tanks and paludariums, but note that the plant gets significantly bigger in its emersed form.

Anubias gracilis is one of the larger representatives of the genus Anubias. In nature it grows on the banks of jungle rivers in West Africa. This species is not often found in trade.
This species has characteristically triangular to heart-shaped, sometimes almost hastiform leave blades, around 7 to 12 cm in length and (4-)6(-10) cm in width. They have 30 to 60 cm long stalks. The creeping rhizome is around 1 to 1.5 cm thick.

When cultivated submersed in an aquarium, this plant tends to stay a lot smaller than the emersed form. It is a very slow grower. This robust, strong bog plant is highly suitable for emersed cultivation in large moist terraria and paludaria, where it can grow to a considerable size. It needs relatively little light.
