Anubias barteri var. nana is a small, attractive plant which thrives in all conditions.
It originates from Cameroon and will reach 5-10 cm height.
The rhizome will be 10-15 cm or more.
It grows slowly, and the leaves survive for several years, giving slow-growing algae the chance to become established.
The best result is achieved by planting on a stone or piece of wood.
Fishing line can be used to attach the plant until it gains a hold.
If planted on the bottom the rhizome must not be covered because it tends to rot.
It flowers frequently under water.
It is not eaten by herbivorous fish.
