Plant Description:

Anubias barteri var. nana is part of the Anubias genus. They are native to slow, low-lit streams, rivers and marshes of Africa. Due to its unique semi aquatic lifestyle, this plant can be grown successfully submerged in the aquarium or emerged in a high humidity terrarium, paludarium or vivarium. 

Anubias barteri var. nana is a larger plant that is adored because of its broad bright green leaves attached to a thick green rhizome. It is important when planting that this rhizome remains unburied.

Anubias barteri var. nana works well when attached to hardscape such as driftwood or stones to ensure the rhizome is free of debris that may cause it to rot.

In the aquarium, Anubias barteri var. nana, is a relatively easy to care for plant that requires low to medium light and minimal fertilization or CO2 supplementation. Barteri var. nana is ideal for large aquariums, small aquariums, terrariums and paludariums.

Although this plant may be a slow grower in the aquarium, with enough time and care it will begin to flourish and even sprout small white flowers.
