    Plants came well-packaged, and I even got one more than I initially ordered. Still have beautiful green leaves and doing well.

    These came to me absolutely beautiful, very healthy. They were a lot taller than I thought they were going to be!

    Looked good but rotting and foul within 48 hours

    Posted by Will on Jan 27th 2014

    I received three of these in my order. They looked great on unboxing. Sadly, within 48 hours all three showed a white fuzz bubble on the rhizome and the leaf stems snapped near the base of the leaf. Additionally, a foul odor was emanating from the tank. After removing from tank and examination I determined that the rhizome was near completely rotted through, mushy and horrendously stinky. I have other plants, including anubias, in the tank which are just fine. I hope this fungus did not spread further in the tank.

    Flowering beauty!

    Posted by Crystal Oliver on Dec 3rd 2013

    I received my order quickly and the plant was such a gorgeous specimen. The one I received even had a bud on it, which looks great in my tank and the leaves were all a beautiful deep green. Perfect plant!

    I ordered 2 of these a week and a half ago. They arrived in excellent condition. One of them was even starting to flower. I now have them tied to a piece of driftwood to use them as a nice midground/focal point in my aquascape. In my high light w/ CO2 setup with regular macro/micro dosing, I already see a couple new leaves beginning to form on each in only a week and a half. The one that was beginning to flower has not continued to flower though. I don't know if it will once it get more established though. I am surprised I do not have any problems with algae growing on the leaves, but that could be attributed to the CO2 and macro/micro dosing. I have not seen one spec of algae on the leaves yet.

    I love it!!

    Posted by Sandra Tutolo on Nov 19th 2009

    This is a great little plant! I have bought 6 of these plants over two orders and they all arrived looking beautiful. Since going in my tanks they began spreading and shooting off new leaves right away. Nana was my first Anubias plant and now I'm hooked!

    one of my favorites!

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 13th 2009

    I ordered several plants and this might be my favorite. I attached it to a piece of drift wood and it is doing great. I have had it about 1 month now and it has already produced a new leaf despite being known as a slow grower.

    What a great plant, beautiful rubbery leaves, slow growing, clean, no maintenance, healthy in new tank set up.
