Anubias barteri var. nana is a small, attractive plant which thrives
in all conditions. It grows slowly, and the leaves survive for several years,
giving slow-growing algae the chance to become established. The best result is
achieved by planting on a stone or tree root. Fishing line can be used to attach
the plant until it gains a hold. If planted on the bottom the rhizome must not
be covered because it tends to rot. It flowers frequently under water. It is not
eaten by herbivorous fish.
