The typical Anubias barteri is native to rainforest streams in West Africa and long known as a robust, undemanding aquarium plant. It is very variable in size, however, with a height of about 25-45 cm it gets considerably bigger than Anubias barteri var. nana. As young plant, it differs from the latter by longer petioles. The coarse, medium green leaves are oval with slightly cordate base. The creeping rhizome soon reaches a length of 10 cm and more.
Anubias barteri var. barteri is one of the easiest aquarium plant and still grows in dimly lit tanks without CO2 supply. It attaches itself on wood and rock but can also be planted in the ground, proposed that the rhizome remains above the substrate level. This Anubias also tolerates strong lighting, but planting in a shady place prevents algae growth on the long-living leaves.
This Anubias is well suited for tanks with big cichlids and plant-eating fish, but looks also good on the hardscape of bigger aquascapes. Together with plants from the same region (e.g. Bolbitis heudelotii and some Crinum species) it is an ideal plant for West Africa-themed stream biotope aquariums. It is also suitable as emersed plant in paludariums and aqua-terrariums.
Anubias barteri var. barteri, named after the plant collector Charles Barter, is a very common, popular aquarium plant, mostly due to its uncomplicatedness.
In its natural habitat this plant grows on and in more or less shady, rapid-flowing rivers and rivulets in south-eastern West Africa. Here it often grows on large rocks or fallen tree trunks, firmly attached, above the waterline or semi-emersed, more seldomly fully submersed.
In the trade, this species is very commonly found. Smaller specimens of Anubias barteri var. barteri can be discerned from A. barteri var. nana quite easliy as their leaves have longer stalks.
Anubias barteri var. barteri is highly tolerant against bad growth conditions, it can live under very low lighting (0.25 W/L) and withough the addition of CO2. However, under lots of light and with CO2 added to the tank it grows faster and forms larger leaves. (read more)
