Anubias afzelli is an aquatic plant that originates from muddу wеtlаndѕ, роndѕ, сrееkѕ, streams, ѕwаmрѕ, and реаtlаndѕ іn the fоrеѕtѕ of Senegal, Guіnеа, and Sierra Leone. Its lаnсеоlаtе- and еllірtісаl-shaped leaves range from green to red. The plant is perfect for tanks with fish, as the leaves are thick enough to prevent most of them from eating it. Anubias afzelli care is easy to perform.

About Anubias Afzelli
It’s common for aquarists to attach this plant to driftwood, using fishing line or black cotton string or aquarium plant glue. It can also be planted in the substrate, as long as the rhizome is left uncovered to prevent rotting. The plant grows quickest when partially submersed and not encroached on by other plants. It is most suited for midground placement. Remove withered and damaged leaves as necessary.
To propagate Anubias Afzelli, cut the rhizome into two or more pieces, depending on the size. Ideally, each rhizome should have three leaves. Snip a leaf and its stem from the rhizome, and let it float until roots form. Once a piece has developed roots, tie it down, being careful not to bury the roots until the rhizome has fully formed.
