Anubias (white)

Recommended Posts

After I bought some bucephalandras I've decided that I love anubias more. (I'm still keeping the buces and see how they will look later.)

 

I have a few anubias in my goldfish tank (nana, petite, and I forgot the name of the another but have it written down). A few petites, a micro (really don't see a difference between petite and micro) and a nana in my shrimp tanks and all of them are doing good. I found them cheerfull plants.

 

Now I really want a white anubias. I can't spend a hundred for a plant, so I was looking more to Pinto and Stardust. If I understand right pinto only has some white leaves and stardust has only white marks on leaves. Do you know if the marks are permanent or they will/can go away in different water parameters/light? Please, share your expirience with any of the white anubias. Also what size are they?

I believe stardust stays white in the middle of the leaves (you can find a 3-5 leaf plantlet for $18 on aquabid), been looking for some myself, but I decided I will probably just wait until the prices go down. As far as pintos, well I cant really help ya there.

Stardust imo grows slower than pinto and is much smaller. With pinto I've notice if grown in med-hi light will throw out white leaves vs low light. As the leaves age the white leaves tend to fade away turning green. Some with specks of white and some full green. Heres a pic of my pinto.

Unfortunately they are expensive, I've even tried to import them and rhey are still very high at wholesale. Problem really is how slow they grow. Your paying because it took a very long time to grow and stay stable.

this makes sense. lately I have seen the prices slowly creeping down to about ~$25 a plantlet.
