Anubias barteri var. barteri aka Barty
So nice they named it twice? Barty here is a solid contender for plant of the month every month, grows well, gets big enough to be impressive, but not so much you're having to tie down the lid to your tank. Happy to happy out in the bit of the tank without bright lights, and just needs glueing or tying to something solid and he's happy. Never had plants before. Let Barty be your first ;)
Anubias barteri var. barteri from West Africa is an undemanding plant. It grows somewhat larger than Anubias barteri var. nana but is grown in the same conditions. From 25-45 cm tall and the creeping rhizome from 10-15 cm or more. Anubias barteri varies considerably in terms of size and leaf shape.
Like other Anubias-species, it is best planted in a shady spot to minimize algae growth on the leaves. If planted on the bottom, the rhizome must not be covered because it tends to rot. It is also suitable for terrariums and paludariums. Herbivorous fish do not eat the very tough and robust leaves.
