Anubias Nana Snow White is an extremely rare aquatic plant variant of the very popular Anubias family. There is still little information known about this particular aquatic plant variant. It is also known by other names such as Anubias White, Anubias White and Anubias Snow White. Because this variant of Anubias is fairly difficult to get and not always readily available, it makes the list of highly sought after aquatic plants for planted tank enthusiasts. Anubias Nana Snow White features beautiful mutations that result in lighter greens to almost completely white, hence the nickname. Anubias Nana Snow White provides an uncommon aesthetic in planted tanks while remaining just as easy to care for as the more common species such as Anubias Nana Petite. With patience and consistent care, this aquatic plant will also produce marbled white leaves that will contrast beautifully amongst other aquatic plant choices.

Care instructions:

In the Anubias Snow White plant, photosynthesis takes place exclusively in the rhizome and in the roots. Therefore the roots must always be left free. By attaching to wood which also has good lighting, this plant grows particularly well. The use of various adhesives is not recommended as they could cover the roots and the plant will die as a result.

In the event of stress, green leaves could appear again to improve growth and catch up on energy.

Anubias Snow White sets a new highlight in the aquarium. Due to its size, it also fits well in nano aquariums.

This aquatic plant is suitable as a midground plant choice. Anubias Nana Snow White will benefit from fertilization and quality light. It is still a slow grower and care should be taken as its leaves are susceptible to algae growth when placed under too high lighting. CO2 is optional, but recommended as it will help encourage faster growth and robust leaves.

Notes:

  • Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium.
  • Remove tissue culture gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
  • These epiphytes can be planted above the substrate or attached to hardscape.
  • Burying the rhizome will cause the plant to melt and die.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • CO2 injection and quality aquarium soil will yield better growth.
  • These epiphytes can be planted above the substrate or attached to hardscape.
