Anubias Nana Golden (Anubias barteri “Golden nana”) is a rare variant of Anubias barteri that is not often seen in the aquarium hobby. It boasts very bright, lime green leaves rather than the darker green leaves of other Anubias varieties. It is an attractive plant that thrives in all conditions. It grows slowly, and the leaves survive for several years. The best result is achieved by planting on a stone or tree root. If planted on the bottom the rhizome must not be covered because it tends to rot.


It can flower underwater and will thrive in shady places, where other plants will not. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish.
