    Does anyone here keep any Anubias species other than barteri and the ever increasing number of variants? I’m about to try and grow some hastifolia, heterophylla and heterophylla ‘Lancelota’.

    I just wondered if anyone could confirm if they’re any different from barteri in terms of care? As I’ve not grown these before.

    Thanks in advance
    Jared

    All the species I’ve kept before are barteri variants, so I can’t comment from experience but I would have thought that they are simialr to barteri in terms of care.

    Is A. lancelota not considered a valid species any more then? I used to grow it and yep same as A. barteri plus variants i.e. tough as old boots! Looks cool growing semi-emerse too.

    Thanks for the replies. I thought they’d be similar to barteri but I think it’s always wise to ask.

    Matt, I concede I’m not 100% sure. I thought heterophylla and lanceolata were two separate species. However the suppliers (Oriental – A company known to have created a fair amount of cultivars) are listing them as heterophylla ‘lancelota’. If I google this I find a reference to a page no longer there on your friends site hippocampus-bildarchiv.de but the page is missing! And I can’t access the cached page at work as it’s blocked by our ‘acceptable use filter’! The plants I have look like every example of Anubias lancelota google images and all of my books have to offer.

    I did also come across a reference to Anubias barteri ‘lancelota’ the other day when researching Nigerian biotopes. Will have to do some digging. I’m glad they’re bomb proof though as they’re going into a tank with low lighting levels. They look good too.

    Well, I just typed in http://www.plantbase.org in hope of finding something similar to fishbase.org. It led to a plant database called plantbase.net. Unfortunately there are not too many aquatic plants detailed at all. But it got me thinking, perhaps the SF knowledge base could be extended to include true aquatic plants at some point in the future? Just a thought…

    It’s in the pipeline and a profile model will be included on the back end of the new site for whenever we want to use it. I ain’t got time to write ’em for the foreseeable though…

    Time eh? lol I know that feeling.

    I could probably help a bit with info and pics on that front. Give us a shout when you’re ready. I can buy in species you need pics for photograph them before being sold on etc. If that helps. Let me know.

    Photos would be a brilliant place to start and much appreciated to be honest Jared. Submersed, if possible.

    Well if you have time Dave let me know what profiles you were thinking of doing first and I’ll see what I can do on the pictures front. I can’t obtain every species, but I can get an awful lot.

    Were you thinking of including pics of various cultivars and hybrid species as well as natural plants Matt?

    Yes please if possible.

    I stock all of those other than Echinodorus uruguayensis, but will see if I can get some in. I think you may need to edit the barteri variety? We’re you thinking ‘nana’ or similar Dave?

    I’ll get something sorted in the next two to three weeks picture wise. Matt I’ll take pics of plants submerged, out of water and bulbs as well as adult plants. Then you can choose what is appropriate etc. Assuming the picture quality is worthy of posting that is! lol
