I posted this on another board but didn't receive much response so maybe
someone here can answer.

Can Anubias hastifolia be grown submerged long term?

Can any of the other 'arrow shaped' leaf species be grown
submerged longterm? ( maybe gigantea(sp?) or gracillis)


Thanks in advance,

In a huge tank.
They get 3 ft tall.

I think some species do poorly over time in the genus.

I am putting them in my 150 so I got a bit of room.

Three feet ,WOW! The 3' you mention I assume is for gigantea.

Is there one species of the 3 you would recommend that I try.
( hastifolia, gracillis or gigantea)

Or would I be better off long term looking for a different plant that
has the same characteristics I'm looking for?

I want something with a large arrow shaped leaf ( 4-5"+ ) and a maintainable
height of around 20-24" . Can you recommend anything that would fit the bill?

I also plan on having lower light plants growing underneath it.

Thanks again.
