The Anubias barteri coffeefolia has been known for a long time and is highly valued by aquarists. It is originally from West and Central Africa. The 15-25 cm high epiphyte is perfect for tying on roots or stones in the middle ground and tolerates soft to hard water. The prototype of many variants is the broad-leaved spear blade Anubias barteri var., Barteri 'from the jungle streams of Africa. Anubias barteri, coffeefolia 'is a variety that produces orange leaves when grown, later turning dark green. The initially brownish petioles and the wavy leaves are reminiscent of the foliage of the coffee shrub (Coffea), from where their name comes from. The firm dark green leaves of this slow-growing, robust and fairly undemanding aquarium plant are not well liked by herbivorous fish. This Anubias does not need much light.

Anubias barteri var., Coffefolia 'grows as a water lily plant. Your rhizome (the green, thick rhizome) does not always crawl along the ground, but can sometimes go up. The rhizome is not implanted in Anubias, because it can rot in the ground. This means that you should tie or stick the coffee spear leaf on an aquarium root or a decorative stone. If you only cover the laterally growing roots with gravel or soil, you can also cultivate the Anubias on the ground, only the rhizome must definitely look out of the gravel or soil.

The 15 to 25 cm high and up to 30 cm wide becoming aquarium plant looks best in the middle ground in high aquariums. The easy-care Anubias barteri, coffefolia 'is not fussy about the water values and even grows under low light conditions. Due to its unpleasant taste, the Anubias is considered perch proof. It is an easy-care all-rounder in the aquarium!

The propagation of the broad-leaved spear blade is as easy as the care: simply cut off a piece with two leaves and tie it up. Finished.
