Easy to grow medium light plant. Do not put the rhizome in the substrate when planting as it has the tendency to rot when buried. As with all Anubias sp. it is prone to algae due to slow growth, and is usually left alone by herbivorous fish.


This plant can be propagated by dividing the rhizome or by separating side shoots.
