The deep green color of the leaves provides a lush and natural appearance, making it a sought-after choice for aquascaping enthusiasts looking to create visually appealing underwater landscapes.

Growing Information:

1. Lighting: Anubias gracilis thrives in low to medium lighting conditions, making it adaptable to a range of aquarium setups. It is not demanding in terms of intense illumination.

4. Pruning: Minimal pruning is necessary for Anubias gracilis. Remove any yellowing or damaged leaves, and trim back excessive growth if required. Avoid burying the rhizome in the substrate to prevent rotting.

5. Placement: Anubias gracilis is versatile and can be used as a midground or background plant, attached to hardscape elements like driftwood or rocks. Ensure that the rhizome is exposed to prevent rot.

6. Water Parameters: Maintain stable water parameters with a temperature range of 72-82°F (22-28°C) and a slightly acidic to slightly alkaline pH between 6.0-7.5.

7. Propagation: Propagate Anubias gracilis through rhizome division or by taking cuttings. Ensure that each section has a portion of the rhizome, and attach it to the substrate or decor.
