Anubias Afzelii is an attractive plant that thrives in all conditions, much like other Anubias plants. It grows slowly, and the leaves survive for several years. The best result is achieved by planting on a stone or tree root. If planted on the bottom the rhizome must not be covered because it tends to rot. It can flower underwater and will thrive in shady places, where other plants will not. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish.
