Anubias sp. ‘Petite’ is a mutation which appeared in cultivation at the Oriental aquarium plant nursery in Singapore.
Grows very slowly, and can be difficult to keep in healthy growth.
Stays less than 5 cm tall and with a rhizome from 5-10 cm or more. It is most decorative when attached to stones or roots, and like other Anubias should be attached with fishing line until it gains a hold.
A specialty plant which is ideal for miniature landscapes in small aquariums.
