 Hi  folks,
 
 Recently  i  picked  up  a  small  shoot  of  anubias  (Don't  exactly  know  the  Species  as  the  leaves  are  too  small)  from  a  LFS.  I  tied  the  same  to  a  small  piece  or  pebble  and  left  it  in  sparingly  planted  tank  which  also  Marselia  sp,  Rotala  sp,  Elantine  Triandra  and  dwarf  hair  grass.  All  the  other  plants  are  doing  well  but  not  the  Anubias.
 
 Following  are  the  specification  of  the  plants  tank-
 1.  Light  -  T5ho  -  2.75  watt/gallon.
 2.  CO2  -  Pressurized  Co2.
 3.  Micro  Ferts  -  Microsol  B  (For  Fe).
 
 Kindly  advice  why  is  the  Anubias  not  growing  after  giving  the  above  growing  conditions  for  atleast  2  Months  time  period.

 Anubias  is  a  slow  growing  plant.  When  kept  in  a  tank  it  will  take  a  few  weeks  to  acclimatize.  After  this  it  will  start  to  grow.  Have  some  patience.  The  plant  you  got  was  probably  grown  immersed,  it  will  take  some  time  to  adapt  and  grow.  Make  sure  you  keep  it  in  a  shaded  spot  and  don't  move  it  around  frequently  in  the  tank.

 @preeths  -  Thanks  for  your  quick  help.  I  did  not  knew  that  it  is  a  slow  growing  plant.  but  just  to  keep  you  informed  i  have  have  tied  that  anubias  shoot  on  the  rock  with  the  cotton  thread  which  directly  gets  the  light.
 
 P.S.  If  you  can  please  help  with  the  post  of  growing  conditions  required  for  Anubias  Sp.

 @sawantamey
 
 You  can  do  2  things  to  increase  the  growth  rate...
 1)  Take  out  the  Anubias  from  your  rock  and  place  it  on  a  driftwood  piece.
       In  Rock  also  Anubias  will  grow  but  better  on  driftwood.
 2)  Anubias  ia  a  low  light  plant.
       It  doesn't  need  intense  light.
       If  you  are  giving  intense  light,  move  it  to  a  shaded  area  of  your  tank.

 There  won't  be  any  critical  issues  but  the  moss  can  grow  and  cover  the  Anubias  after  some  time.
 Also  I  don't  like  them  growing  together  in  the  same  driftwood  as  it  won't  look  nice.
