Tropica Aquarium Plants was the first nursery to grow Anubias
barteri v. nana in the 1970's. It is a very sturdy swamp plant and it
often set submerged flowers - it seems like the plant doesn't realize it is
growing submerged. It is slow growing and should be offered low light regimes
to avoid algal growth on the leaves. It accepts all kind of freshwaters - hard
and soft, acid and alkaline.
Anubias barteri v. nana prefers to grow the rhizome above or on the
substrate surface and it is therefore very suitable for growth directly on
rocks and roots. It is easily reproduced by dividing the rhizome and Tropica
produces Anubias barteri v. nana on lava, roots, and in pots. You can
greatly enhance the application of this plant - try to take a look at the
article Plants cultivated on stones and tree roots! See also
