 Hello  Friends
 
 last  week  I  had  been  to  Nautilus  bandra  and  picked  up  ANUBIAS  BARTERI-  its  in  a  BB  tank  with  tin  foil  barb,  vido,angels.  I  have  tied  it  rubber  band  on  a  white  rock.  Lighting  is  T5-  and  1  sponge  filter  in  2x1x1  tank.  Today  I  saw  1  leaf  a  little  brownish  and  it  also  has  a  cut  leaf.  
 
 How  to  maintain  this  plant?
 
 How  long  is  the  growth  period?
 
 Your  advise  please-  Smile   Clapping

 Hey  Percy,
 Welcome  to  the  planted  word.   Cheering  
 This  I  feel  is  something  different  from  fishy  side  of  hobby.  You  might  need  to  study  a  lot.
 For  beginning  
 Anubias  are  slow  growers.  
 Its  better  to  grow  them  with  pressurised  CO2.  
 This  being  a  barebottom  tank,  you  might  also  need  some  dosing.
 Wait  for  experts.

 It  is  a  sturdy  but  slow  growing  plant.
 It  might  lose  its  existing  leaves.
 Do  not  tie  the  rhizome  very  tightly,  if  it  becomes  damaged,  the  plant  will  die.
 A  monthly  fertilization  will  do  as  it  is  a  very  slow  grower.

 Thanks  both  of  you.  Bow   but  1  leaf  is  cut  and  another  is  getting  brow.  I  have  tied  a  rubberband.  And  this  tank  is  daily  50%  water  change.  Shall  I  start  DIY  CO2?  Does  it  require  compulsorily?  I  have  sun  light  also  about  2  hours  direct.  Insteaad  of  tying,  shall  I  put  rocks  around  it  to  support  the  plant?  I  can  cover  the  rhizome  with  small  white  stones.

 1.  loosely  tie  it  to  stone/wood.  Dont  use  anything  that  might  pinch  or  crush  the  rhizome.
 2.  Forget  the  plant  and  dont  even  move  it  for  next  few  months
 3.  Do  regular  water  changes  (so  that  it  gets  micro  nutrients)
 
 The  above  is  more  than  enough  for  it  to  get  established  and  start  growing.  
 
 Optional  -
 1.  Can  dose  ferts  once  in  a  while
 2.  Can  add  DIY  co2
 
 I  have  done  just  the  first  part  and  it  gives  out  around  a  leaf  a  month  (or  slightly  better)  Smile

 Daily  50%  WC  would  probably  do  the  trick.
 Wait  for  a  month.
 
 DIY  CO2,  dosing  etc.  etc.  is  an  endless  pit.  If  you  see  new  leaves  in  a  months  time,  why  start  with  all  these.
 
 BUT  that  is  entirely  upto  your  own  expectations.  If  you  want  more,  you'll  have  to  work  more.

 Don't  worry,  have  patience.  Very Happy  
 They  are  mostly  grown  emersed  when  you  first  get  them,  when  they  get  submerged  in  your  tank  they  lose  their  old  leaves  and  new  underwater  leaves  come  after  some  time.
 Co2  &  fertilization  are  not  required,  however  as  you  have  a  bb  tank,  you  will  have  to  give  it  some  fertilization.
 Do  not  bury  the  rhizome  under  any  circumstance,  they  need  flowing  water  over  their  rhizome.
 It  is  a  very  sturdy  plant  and  the  only  kill  it  is  it  damage  the  rhizome,  it  should  not  be  buried  or  tied  too  tightly.
 Just  tie  it  tight  enough  so  that  the  plant  does  not  fall  off.
 You  can  start  worrying  when  new  leaves  start  to  die,  not  before  that.  Thumb Up

 If  the  rock  is  too  smooth  then  it  will  not  attach  to  it.  Weekly  water  change  will  do.  Your  tin  foil  may  knock  it  off  from  time  to  time.  Shouldn't  be  there  in  a  2',  remove  it.  Importantly  see  that  your  water  params  do  not  fluctuate  too  much.  CO2  not  necessary.  May  get  algae  on  old  leaves,  but  can  be  scraped  off.  Don't  cover  the  rhizome.

 Remove  the  rubber  band.  It  might  have  already  crushed  the  rhizome.  Tie  it  with  a  nylon  or  cloth  thread  loosely.  I  use  the  thinner  jute  twine.  It  rots  and  disintegrates  in  few  months.
 
 Dont  cover  the  rhizome  with  anything  and  dont  disturb  the  setup.

 Hi  Garoth,
 
 ANUBIAS  BARTERI  is  a  very  sturdy  plant.
 No  need  of  bothering  about  CO2...  It  is  not  necessary.
 This  being  a  low  light  plant,  direct  Sunlight  will  not  be  good  for  this.
 As  Saurab  said,  some  fertz  dosing  will  be  good.
 
 Regards
 Sujo

 Also  as  its  a  slow  growing  plant  and  doesnt  prefer  direct  harsh  lighting  ,  pls  plant  it  in  a  shaded  area.  Slow  water  movement  can  cause  BBA  on  it  .  ...
