Anubias barteri var. glabra is a medium-sized Anubias that comes from rainforest streams in West Africa. There are several different forms of the variety glabra. The offered plant (Dennerle short name A19.3) has quite narrowly lanceolate, wavy leaves.

The variety glabra is as as undemanding and robust as many other Anubias forms. It grows well as epiphyte on the hardscape as well as fixed to the substrate (don't bury the rhizome!). Its narrow, lanceolate leaves are an interesting contrast to other, rather broad-leaved Anubias forms.

The variety glabra really is a collective term for various Anubias barteri forms that grow to different sizes, their leaves oval to lanceolate. They cannot always be clearly discerned from other varieties of the species. A. barteri var. angustifolia with its longish leaf blades, e.g., looks rather similar.

A. barteri var. glabra is as undemanding as var. nana and can be bound to rocks or driftwood as an epiphyte as the latter, or stuck between rocks, attached to the glass with suckers or planted in the substrate. Then the rhizome should remain uncovered.
