Anubias barteri var.barteris is an undemanding plant. It grows somewhat larger than Anubia 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 aquaterratiums. Herbivorous fish do not eat the very tough and robust leaves.
