"Pinto" Moss Cave / Coco Shell - Coconut with Weeping Moss & "Pinto" Spear Leaf
Pinto Anubias is a relatively new cultivar that can provide great light spots in the aquarium. This white-green spotted variety needs a little more light than other Anubias so that the leaves do not turn green. In addition to the Anubias, the Christmas moss, with which this Coco Shell was planted, also plays a supporting role. It looks incredibly natural and makes the coco shell look just great. However, it not only fits into an aquarium, but also looks equally good in an aquaterrarium with small crabs, for example with Geosesarma. - Garnelio

This coco cave was planted with Christmas moss and a white green variegated Anubias barteri var. nana "Pinto". Here you can offer your shrimps, smaller crayfish and catfish in the aquarium and your crabs in the aquaterrarium a decorative and at the same time extremely natural looking hiding place.

The beautiful, small Anubias barteri var. nana "Pinto" sets true highlights in the foreground or middle ground. Its elegant small leaves form a great contrast to the strong fir-shaped fronds of Christmas Moss (Vesicularia montagnei). Christmas Moss grows firmly on the coco cavity thanks to its adhesive organs, as does Anubias.

Like the Pinto Anubias, Christmas Moss is a perching plant. They are ideally cultivated on roots or stones or - as here - on coconut caves or other hiding places. They can be kept not only under water, but also on the land part in a humid terrarium with high humidity.

The moss cushions quickly become quite dense and must therefore be taken back a little from time to time. This can be done well with sharp scissors. The cut off shoots can simply be reattached and thus the moss can be propagated very easily. The Anubias can also be divided and re-bound.


Height: 5-7 cm

Diameter: 8-10 cm

Our recommendation: For a splendid plant growth we recommend the use of the NatureHolic fertilizer series and for new plants the Premium Nutrient Substrate NatureHolic GroundBooster.

Expert Tip: With the NatureHolic Plant Glue glue this plant gently and easily on stones, roots and decoration . Made in Germany, the adhesive does not pollute the water and has no negative impact on the stock.
