These grow slowly, under weak lighting, in soft, acid water. Multiplication takes
place through a division of the rhizome, which must never be covered with soil.
There are two varieties: the smallest, the dwarf anubias, is ideal for foregrounds;
the biggest, Barter's anubias, has spear-like leaves and can be placed a little
further back. Size: 30 cm.
The Congo anubias can exceed 35 cm in height and is therefore only suitable for
large aquariums. The shape of the leaves can vary considerably but, broadly speaking,
they are oval or lanceolate. Size: 30-40 cm.
