Greetings! This small blog has a simple purpose - to chronicle the Geocaching adventures of Tokasper.
We are a small family (two boys and their parents) living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
As both parents travel a lot we will be logging both Danish and international caches.

Tropica Aquarium Plants was the first nursery to grow Anubias barteri v. nana in the 1970"s. It is a very sturdy swamp plant and it often set submerged flowers - it seems like the plant doesn"t realize it is growing submerged. It is slow growing and should be offered low light regimes to avoid algal growth on the leaves. It accepts all kind of freshwaters - hard and soft, acid and alkaline.
Anubias barteri v. nana prefers to grow the rhizome above or on the substrate surface and it is therefore very suitable for growth directly on rocks and roots. It is easily reproduced by dividing the rhizome and Tropica produces Anubias barteri v. nana on lava, roots, and in pots.
