Anubias barteri var. barteri is an undemanding plant. It grows somewhat larger than Anubias barteri var. nana but is grown in the same conditions. Anubias barteri varies considerably in terms of size and leaf shape. Like other Anubias
species, it is best planted in a shady spot to restrict algae growth on
the leaves. It is also suitable for terrariums and aquaterrariums.
Herbivorous fish do not eat the very tough and robust leaves.
