Description

Anubias barteri var. glabra is a medium-sized Anubias that comes from rainforest streams in West Africa. There are several different forms of the variety glabra. The offered plant (Dennerle short name A19.3) has quite narrowly lanceolate, wavy leaves. It was long known as Anubias minima and is still labeled with this name by several water plant nurseries.

The variety glabra is as as undemanding and robust as many other Anubias forms. It grows well as epiphyte on the hardscape as well as fixed to the substrate (don't bury the rhizome!). Its narrow, lanceolate leaves are an interesting contrast to other, rather broad-leaved Anubias forms.

Anubias barteri var. glabra is widely spread in West Africa, from Guinea to Gabun. The plant forms dense populations on river banks and rocks in and on forest rivulets, where they often share the same habitat with Bolbitis heudelotii and Crinum natans.

The variety glabra really is a collective term for various Anubias barteri forms that grow to different sizes, their leaves oval to lanceolate. They cannot always be clearly discerned from other varieties of the species. A. barteri var. angustifolia with its longish leaf blades, e.g., looks rather similar.
Relatively small A. barteri var. glabra plants have been imported from Cameroun under the synonym Anubias minima, they are still carried under that name in trade.

A. barteri var. glabra is as undemanding as var. (read more)
