The Anubias barteri sp. 'Nana' is only recently known in the aquarium industry and is very much appreciated by aquascapers because of its small size. This Anubias is originally from Cameroon. This only 8-12 cm high expectant Aufsitzerpflanze is perfect for tying on roots or stones in the foreground or middle ground of nano-aquariums and tolerates soft to hard water. The original form of this variant is not yet known, it is cultivated since 1970 by the company Tropica and distributed. Anubias barteri var., Nana 'is native to fast-flowing jungle streams in Africa. Other varieties of the dwarf spur leaf are the 'petite' and the 'bonsai', but also the 'mini'. The firm dark green leaves of this slow-growing, robust and fairly undemanding aquarium plant are not liked by nibbling fish. This Anubias doesn't need much light.

Anubias barteri sp. 'Nana' grows as a water lily plant. Your rhizome (the green, thick rhizome) does not always crawl along the ground, but can sometimes go up. The rhizome is not planted in Anubias because it can rot in the bottom. This means that you should tie or stick the dwarf spider leaf on an aquarium root or a decorative stone. If you only cover the laterally growing light roots with gravel or soil, you can also cultivate the Anubias on the ground, only the rhizome must definitely look out of the gravel or soil.

The 8 to 12 cm tall aquarium plant looks great in the middle ground of not too high aquariums. The easy-care Anubias barteri sp. 'Nana' is not fussy about the water values and grows even under low light quite acceptable. Due to its unpleasant taste, the Anubias is considered perch proof. It is an easy-care all-rounder in the aquarium! If fertilised, it will help your growth so that it can even start to bloom!

The breeding of the dwarf spear leaf is as easy as the care: simply cut off a piece with two leaves and tie it up. Finished.
