Lighting Requirements

This species has quite low demands on lighting but will often tolerate all levels. Being planted in the shade of other plants, they make a great addition to a tank with tall or floating plants only.


These plants are a classic rhizome plant, when first adding a newly bought plant, ensure that the rhizome is not completely buried in the substrate otherwise it will decompose and die. In order to propagate this plant, simply divide the rhizome into two or more pieces depending on length; each section will be forming a new plant. Anubias barteri “Coffeefolia” do well attached to bogwood, rocks or other objects in an aquarium - however, they do fine on the substrate too.


This Anubias is very easy to care for in the aquarium. Being known to tolerate a large range of pH, total water hardness, temperature and thanks to the fact that these plants should never need cutting back, they’re a good choice for almost every fish tank.

Short Description

This species of Anubias is slightly shorter than some of the other species but it is still a very beautiful addition to the aquarium. The leaves are a reddish-brown colouration and arch between the ribs. It will flower underneath the water surface but seeds will not be produced.
