Common Name: N/A


Anubias barteri var. coffeifolia is a very beautiful, low cultivar of Anubias barteri. 15-25 cm tall and a creeping rhizome from 10-15 cm or more.

It is characteristic that the leaves arch considerably between the leaf ribs, and the new leaves are red-brown. The colour combination and leaf shape make it an attractive variety in both large and small aquariums. It flowers frequently under water but does not produce seeds there.

Anubias species seem to grow so slowly that they do not realize that they have been submerged. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish and thus can be planted with cichlids.

  • Remove plant from pot and use aquascaping tweezers to remove the rock wool. It is most decorative when attached to stones or roots, and like other Anubias it should be attached with fishing line or cotten thread until it gains a hold. You can also use plant weights or gel based super glue. If planted in the substrate, do not cover the rhizome as this may cause the plant to rot and die. Undemanding like the other Anubias and does not appreciate high light intensity or CO2 either.
