</DIV><H1>Can you cultivate Annubis plants.....?</H1><DIV id=Qtextbox><P><STRONG>Author: njmpm</STRONG><BR><BR>Hi everyone,

<br>

specifically the plant experts........haha

<br>

Anyway, I was wondering if you can take cutting from Annubis plants........ not sure of the exact variety maybe Annubis nana...... grown on drift wood or rocks etc........ I know someone with a lovely plant about fifty cms large and its sitting in a bird pond doing nothing..... they wont get rid of it but maybe if i can take a cutting and grow it they might let me.......haha

<br>

So please if anyone has any experience with this could you please let me know........

<br>

Thanks everyone,

<br>

Remember these plants are waterplants and take up nutrients through all parts of the plants, not just the roots (unlike their terrestrial cousins). The roots are just or at least mainly for anchoring purposes. I have just split my Anubias nana into three. All look happy and healthy and are growing.
