Large rounded leaves on long petioles. Leaves are 2 to 3 times as big as Anubias barteri var barteri or coffeefolia.

I have two specimens of this hardy plant in a 10 gallon, one of which dominates the tank with a diameter of approximately one foot all around. It has grown to this size without fertilization of any kind and under very poor lighting conditions. As a beginner aquarist I reccommend this plant to anyone who wants some plant life in their aquarium. It is by far the hardiest plant you can get and is beautiful with its thick, robust leaves. It can be encouraged to grow on rocks and driftwood easily and will provide cover for your fish. Dim lighting is the best for this plant as it is slow growing and bright lighting will promote algae growth on its leaves. If you are looking for a beautiful hardy plant to keep in a low-cost aquarium with fish that prefer dim lighting, Anubias sp. are the best choice.
