Anubias Nana Bonsai is a captivating variation of the popular Anubias Nana plant, characterized by its unique appearance, smaller size, and exquisite bonsai-like structure.

1. Lighting:

  • Anubias Nana Bonsai flourishes in low to moderate lighting conditions. Avoid exposing it to intense, direct light, which can lead to algae growth on its leaves.

2. Substrate:

  • Like its standard counterpart, Anubias Nana Bonsai should not be planted in substrate. Attach it to driftwood, rocks, or other aquarium decor using fishing line or thread, ensuring the rhizome remains exposed.

3. Water Parameters:

  • Maintain stable water conditions with the following parameters:
    • Temperature: 72-82°F (22-28°C)
    • pH: 6.0-7.5
    • Hardness: Soft to moderately hard water (2-12 dGH)

4. Water Quality:

  • Regular water changes (approximately 10-20% every 1-2 weeks) are vital to remove organic buildup and maintain optimal water quality.

5. Fertilization:

  • Anubias Nana Bonsai is not a heavy nutrient consumer. Use a balanced liquid or root fertilizer formulated for aquarium plants sparingly. Avoid over-fertilization, which can harm the plant.

6. Compatibility:

  • Anubias Nana Bonsai generally coexists well with most fish and other aquatic plants. Ensure it receives proper light and isn't overshadowed by faster-growing plants.

7. Pruning:

  • Trim any yellowing or damaged leaves regularly to encourage new growth and maintain the bonsai-like structure. Use sharp scissors or pruning tools to remove these leaves close to the rhizome.

8. CO2 (Carbon Dioxide):

  • Anubias Nana Bonsai can thrive without CO2 supplementation. In fact, it often does better without added CO2, as excessive CO2 levels can lead to algae growth.

9. Algae Control:

  • Maintain a balance of nutrients, lighting, and water circulation to prevent algae from colonizing the leaves. If algae appear, gently wipe them off during water changes.

10. Propagation:

  • Anubias Nana Bonsai can be propagated by dividing the rhizome. Carefully separate the rhizome and attached leaves to create new plants. Be cautious to avoid damaging the rhizome during this process.
