Anubias congensis

Anubias congensis (family Araceae) is the most common of the spear shaped leaf Anubias species. Anubias congensis is also an African species and one of the larger growing species that can reach up to 25cm in height. This is an excellent plant in large aquariums where it can be attached to rocks or grown in the substrate if the rhizome is not buried. These plants are propagated commercially by tissue culture but can be grown from cutting up the rhizome and planting these pieces. This is like the other Anubias also a good choice of plant for a cichlid aquarium. CO2 may help the growth but if the plant seems to deteriorate it should be slowed down.
