Anubias barteri var. barteri is most suited in the midground area where it can form hedges and spread along driftwood. Attach Anubias barteri var. barteri to rocks or driftwood using thread and fishing line. Do not bury the rhizome (hard horizontal stem) underneath the substrate or it will rot and the plant will die. The leaves of this plant are susceptible to green spot algae, and black beard algae (if there is low carbon dioxide), therefore it should be planted in a shaded area.

Collection is welcome though I can send the plant by Royal Mail with great care. I can accommodate most circumstances of combining postage to cover costs if you order something else from me. If there are any questions you have then please get in touch before you make the purchase.
