Anubias afzellis

Anubias afzellis (family Araceae) is one of the Anubias with spear shaped leaves. One way to tell it apart from the other species is by the dark red petioles it has. Anubias afzellis is also known as Anubias angustifolia. Cutting the rhizome into pieces and planting these can propagate all the Anubias species. Anubias are low light plants that do very well in aquariums. Anubias are also one of the few plants that can be kept in an aquarium with cichlids.
