Anubias barteri var. barteri, the Broadleaf Spear Leaf, grows relatively fast for an Anubias, but is still a slow growing plant compared to other aquarium plants. In nature, it is found in partial shade to shade along fast-flowing bodies of water, often in splash, occasionally submerged. In terms of leaf shape, broadleaf spearwort is quite variable. Its foliage is dark green and firm and is spared from herbivorous fish, making Broadleaf Spear Leaf ideal for Malawi or Tanganyika perch tanks, among others. Unlike other Anubias species, the rootstock does not always grow along the substrate, but can also tend to grow vertically upwards.
Anubias barteri var. barteri also thrives in aquariums with low light. It does not like planting in a substrate such as soil, gravel or sand; its rootstock may rot when exposed to air. It is better to tie up the plant.
To propagate Anubias barteri var. barteri, you can simply cut off a section of the rhizome that still has at least two leaves growing on it. This is then reattached.
The Broadleaf Spear Leaf Anubias barteri var. barteri is also very suitable for emerse cultivation in an aquaterrarium or paludarium with high humidity.
