    Large healthy plants that arrived in good shape

    Beautiful plants! Would highly recommend these and they bring a nice contrast in leaf shape compared to some of the another anubias in my tank.

Description

Anubias barteri var. angustifolia from West Africa is a beautiful plant with long, narrow leaves.

10-20 cm tall with a rhizome, from which the leaves develop, that grows 10-15 cm or larger. Very easy to grow since it thrives in almost any conditions, although high light intensity should be avoided. Place it instead in shady positions under larger plants. If planted in the bottom, do not cover the rhizome, it tends to rot. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish. 

Anubias barteri var. angustifolia used to be sold as Anubias afzelii, but the latter is actually a much larger species.

 

Pro Tips

Anubias can be propagated by cutting the rhizome into pieces. New growth on cut pieces will begin at one or more leaf nodes so ensure that each piece has at least 3 nodes ideally with leaves as well.
