Anubias 1705


West Africa, Anubias barteri "Caladiifolia '1705'" are mostly found in Guyana and are not always available to purchase.

Planting Area

These Anubias should be planted in midground to background areas of an aquarium.

Lighting Requirements

These Anubias aren't picky about requirements on lighting, can tolerate all levels except for too dark or too bright spots. This species is often planted in the shade of taller plants.


This plant species is a a rhizome plant. A good way how to grow and acclimatise newly purchased rhizome plants is to attach it to driftwood - never place the rhizome deeply to the substrate as it might cause the plant to rot. To propagate the plant, simply divide the rhizome into two or more pieces and each section will form a new plant. They do look well and thrive when attached to rocks or wood as well as growing on the substrate.


This plant is very easy to care for in the aquarium. They do tolerate a wide range of water parameters (pH, total water hardness and temperature) and shouldn't need cutting back ever.

Short Description

Anubias barteri "Caladiifolia '1705'" are very sturdy and are happy with a wide range of water parameters as mentioned already. The leaves of this Anubias species are rounder and larger than other species and as they are very slow growing, algal growth may form on the older leaves. This can be reduced by adding less CO2 to the tank or reducing the lighting levels.
