Could someone please run down for me the various Anubias' in terms of size? ie, smallest to largest.

Thanks.

Here are a few photos of some common (and not common:micro) anubias I have showing leaf sizes





I'll list ones I know, there are plenty I've not owned yet to get proepr size info on
Small to large:
micro
petite
narrow leaf.. gold
nana
coffeefolia
barterie
Broadleaf
Hastifolia
I owned others but lost them to rhizome rot several years ago and forget their sizes...
I've been told my gold/golden anubias is abnormal as most are the size of nana but mine is between nana and petite.. so I may have a hybrid (golden pollinated with a petite and made smaller offspring).

Check out the anubias wiki to see some other anubias. Look at "Size in aquarium", its in cm but you can sue a converter on google "convert cm to inches".

Wow! That's impressive. How long did it take to get that size? Any special growing conditions?
Sadly I cannot answer that. I got it from a seller (who is no longer on this forum), it came this size, and was lost within a month to the contagious disease. They were mis-selling it as regular barterie. Its rhizome was thicker than my thumb, it was at about 1" diameter!!
