    Hi Everyone =)

    looking for some help!

    I just got this plant about a month ago, it only had two marble white leaves
    1 did very bad in shipping and i had to remove (melting) the other is still going strong In it total has another 9 leaves but all are green =( Since then i have had 1 new leaf grow and the plant looks nice! I still have it in one of my quarantine tanks so will move to another tank soon

    But???

    How do i get it to grow the marble white leaves again?

    Should I move it to one of my tanks with hight light and co2?

    I have also read somewhere to cut it back to the last marble leaf but it only has one?


    Tank Specs (If It Helps)
    2gal New Plant QT
    Spongefilter
    River Sand
    1 -23 watt Cfl 6500k with aluminum reflector - shared with another 2gal QT


    Stock
    1 Anubia Congensis Mini
    1 Anubia Nana Pinto
    5 Species of Bucephalandra
    Fissidens Nobilis
    1 Cherry Shrimp


    Any recomendations would be greatly appreciated


    Happy Day=)
    Joe

    From what I remember of growing Anubia Nana Pinto is that newer leaves will be white and as they grow old they turn green. A very slow grower as most Anubias are. It also needs more light than the regular Anubia

    Hi Joao, Thanks for the input =)

    I also was under the impression they start white and turn green over time, but the oldest leaf is the only marble one and the new leaves are just fully green will try more light and some CO2

    Was also thinking i might try it in one of my emersed tanks

    Happy Day Amigo!!!

    The emersed version of Anubia Pinto should go pearl colour like crazy:) Keep me updated if you can :)
