Anubias barteri var. nana is a small, very 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.
Of particular benefit, this variety grows slowly, and the leaves survive for several years, thus giving slow-growing algae the chance to become established. It flowers frequently under water and is not generally eaten by herbivorous fish.
