    Description

    This dwarf Anubias is available in trade under two variant names: Anubias barteri var. nana 'Petite' and 'Bonsai'."Petite-Nana" has considerably smaller leaves than standard A. barteri var. nana, however, it is as robust and easy to care for. It grows under very low light (0.25 watts per litre and less) as well as under strong lights (1 watts per litre and more). It doesn't need the addition of CO2, however, it can be beneficial for growth nonetheless.This dwarf Anubias is popular in aquascaping, as it is one of the most beautiful epiphytic plants for decorating the hardscape (driftwood, rocks). It can also be planted into the substrate (do not cover the rhizome!).

    The smallest Anubias variety in the trade can be found under two names: Anubias barteri var. nana 'Petite' and 'Bonsai'. Its origins are very much in the dark: according to information given by Dennerle around the year 1997, the plant originates from Cameroun, according to the Tropica plant catalogue, this variety is based on a mutation that occured in the plant nursery "Oriental Aquaria" in Singapore (Kasselmann 2010). Whereas it is almost identical to Anubias barteri var. nana, its small size and slower growth is often given as a reason for higher prices.

    Contrary to the opinion of some dealers the leaf blade of 'Petite' respectively 'Bonsai' may grow larger than 1 cm. However, it stays smaller than its ancestral form, Anubias barteri var. nana, anyway. Like the latter, 'Petite' is very hardy and has been called "growing plastic plant". (read more)
