ADA (Aqua Design Amano) Tissue Culture – Anubias barteri var. ‘Coffeefolia’ is a very beautiful, low cultivar of Anubias barteri. 15-25 cm tall and a creeping rhizome from 10-15 cm or more.
This especially distinctive variety of Anubias barteri is also known under trade names such as Anubias barteri “Coffeefolia”. Its bullate leaves resemble those of the coffee shrub.
The Coffee Leaf Anubias gets bigger than the Dwarf Anubias. It is a robust, very slowly growing epiphyte, also suitable for planting in the midground. As with other Anubias forms, it?s only important that the rhizome is not burrowed in the ground.
It is characteristic that the leaves arch considerably between the leaf ribs, and the new leaves are red-brown. The colour combination and leaf shape make it an attractive variety in both large and small aquariums. It flowers frequently under water but does not produce seeds there.
Anubias species seem to grow so slowly that they do not realize that they have been submerged. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish.
