Anubias Jade (Anubias sp. “Jade”), Bare Root
Anubias Jade is is a new and rare color variety of Anubias species!
Anubias Jade (Anubias sp. “Jade”) is a rare variant of Anubias sp. that is new in the aquarium hobby. It is very distinguishable by its silky smooth jade coloration which provides a striking contrasts with darker green leaves in the aquarium. Like virtually all Anubias plants, it is extremely hardy, undemanding, and can thrive in a variety of water parameters.
Care for Anubias Jade is identical to other Anubias plants, with one exception. It is best placed in the middle ground and will look its best under high lighting. High lighting is needed for this species to maintain the jade coloration in tact on new leaf growth. Excessive lighting can result in unattractive and pesky algae growth on its leaves. However, this algae growth can easily be kept under control in an aquarium with a healthy population of shrimp (especially Amano shrimp), snails, and/or algae-eating fish that will constantly graze on the algae without harming the plant itself. Most herbivorous animals will not harm Anubias Jade whatsoever, although some bio-fim/”wood-eating” Panaque genus plecos may “chew” holes in its leaves. Like many Anubias species, this plant is slow and steady in growth and does not seem to respond significantly to CO2 supplementation. It thrives best when attached to driftwood or rockwork. It can be planted in the substrate but its rhizome (roots) must not be buried in the substrate or it will rot and recede. It can also be planted emersed in terrariums, paludariums, and viquariums.
