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.
