Anubias barteri var. ‘Barteri’ is a very common, popular aquarium plant, mostly due to its low demand. In its natural habitat this plant grows on and in more or less shady, rapid-flowing rivers in south-eastern West Africa. It has a broad-leaved spear leaf and grows up to 20 to 40 cm high making it ideal for the middle ground. It’s fairly undemanding aquarium plant and does not need much light to thrive.
