Anubias barteri (3 to 5 inches tall)
The Anubias barteri plant in the picture is one that is planted in one of my personal aquariums, and is the same size we send. Approximate shipping size ranges from 3 to 5 inches tall and 3 to 4 inches wide, which is larger than the shipping sizes of most others on the market! It comes with bare roots that should be planted under the substrate. All of our plants are bright and healthy because they are kept in a water in a plant-dedicated tank rather than plastic packaging, which means your plant will arrive in top condition.
The Anubias barteri plant is a very popular plant in the aquarium hobby due to its visual appeal and how easy it is to care for. This plant will grow in just about any type of lighting, but its leaves grow more quickly and densely under high-intensity lighting. Anubias barteri can tolerate just about any type of water hardness and pH levels; however, it tends to do best in soft water with a pH of 6.5 to 7.5. The best temperature range for this plant is 72° to 82° F.
The leaves of this plant are large, pointed at the ends, and leathery in texture. Because its leaves are tough, they are usually not eaten by fish or other plant-eating critters. This plant is excellent for aquariums that house fish, snails, and dwarf shrimp, as it provides biofilm, hiding places, and security for all aquarium inhabitants.
