Anubias Barteri is a great beginner plant for any tank. You can't kill this plant unless you really go out of your way to do it. Anubias Barteri grows by having a horizontal rhizome and producing vertical leaves. It is similar to Anubias Nana, but it gets bigger leaves. When planting the Anubias Barteri, do not bury the rhizome in your substrate. Only bury the roots or attach to driftwood or rocks. You can propagate this plant by cutting the rhizome in half and moving the cutting to another area. This will allow both cuttings to keep growing.
Much like other Anubias, Anubias Barteri can be easily attached to driftwood or rocks. You can also plant the Anubias Barteri, however, make sure the horizontal rhizome or stem is above the substrate. It can also be easily propagated by cutting the rhizome into smaller sections. We recommend leaving 2-3 leaves per section.
