This is similar to Anubias Nana, except the leaves have a striking GOLDEN color!

The plant itself consists of a creeping rhizom from which leaves grow that could ultimately last years. Anubias barteri var. nana isn't always finicky regarding light intensity and even grows underneath very low light (0.25 watt per litre and below) as well as beneath sturdy light (1 watt per litre and over).

It grows even in the absence of CO2, but, a carbon dioxide fertilisation can be beneficial to its growth, in addition to fertilisation thru the substrate or a nutrient-rich substrate as well as the elimination of old leaves.

high levels of phosphate (1.5-2 mg/l) appear to induce flowering independently within the tank.

High phosphate degrees in combination with a very good iron and micronutrient supply reduce issues with spot algae below sturdy light. Any other manner to control these algae is to place the plant in a shadier part of the aquarium.

This species is very well acceptable for the accentuation of the middleground in nano tanks and small aquaria. In large aquaria it is better placed placed within the foreground. Whilst planting, please keep in mind to avoid covering the rhizome with gravel to save it from rotting.
