This Anubias is an extremely slow grower (the slowest in my tank), but the light brown new leaves add some color until they're about 3-5 days old and they turn green. The ridges in the leaves are very distinct in the variety.

After a decade of having this plant in my tank I can tell you it is very hardy. When planning a tank with this plant in it, think of the direction it will grow. Point the rhizome in that direction and give it the room to expand stright out from there. I have had them grow 4 feet long in my 6 foot tank and when you have to move them, they make a bit of a mess.

I have this plant in a low light and a high light tank. In low light it has only produced a single new leaf in 4 months time. But under high light it is producing a new leaf every 10 days like clockwork. Very interesting plant with the tank leaves that turn green as they age. One of my favorite plants.

Is the plant in the picture not Anubias barteri var. barteri? I cannot see any of the brownish-red petioles nor wine red new leaves. I have sent a picture of what I think is var. Coffeefolia.

I have several of these in my tank that act as a mid level ground cover. I planted them not too for apart from each other and they completely cover up the entire bottom of the tank with shade. The gobies can swim around without having to worry about any of the other fish. Kinda awesome for them. For some reason mine grow really fast. A new leaf fully grow within a week, every week. I don't use CO2 and my lighting is only 1.2 WTG. A little weird for me. Maybe its the supplements.
