Anubias barteri var. nana is a small Anubias barteri variety, long known in the aquarium hobby as robust, undemanding epiphytic plant for the hardscape (driftwood, rock). It grows under very low light (0.25 watts per litre and less) as well as under strong lights (1 watts per litre and more). It doesn't need the addition of CO2, however, it can be beneficial for growth nonetheless. It can also be planted into the substrate (do not cover the rhizome!).

High phosphate levels in combination with a good iron and micronutrient supply reduce problems with spot algae under strong light. Another way to control these algae is to place the plant in a shadier part of the aquarium.

This species is very well suited for the accentuation of the middleground in nano tanks and small aquaria. In large aquaria it is better placed in the foreground. When planting, please keep in mind not to cover the rhizome with gravel to prevent it from rotting. Anubias barteri var. nana may also grow on driftwood or rocks, to which it can be attached with a nylon thread.
