Anubias Coffeefolia

Scientific Name: Anubias barteri var. Coffeefolia

Care Level: Easy

Biotope: Africa

Temperature Range: 68° -  80°F

Anubias are wonderful beginner plants, doing well in a wide range of conditions. Endemic to  Africa they can be found growing in streams, rivers, and even marshes. Preferring more subdued lighting, their genus gets its name from the Egyptian god Anubis, from often being found growing in shaded areas.

Anubias are rather slow growers, with ideal conditions they typically will grow a new leaf every 3 weeks or so. You can get anubias to grow faster under high lighting conditions with injected CO2.


Anubias can be planted in a wide variety of ways, typically preferring being attached to a surface allowing water to flow over their roots. When planting anubias in substrate take care not to bury the rhizome of the plant, the rhizome is the thickest part of the plant where the leaves and roots sprout from.

Another healthy and beautiful plant!

It makes a wonderful centerpiece for my nano tank! As with everything else I have ordered from Cory, it is disease-free and quite beautiful!


I bought 4 anubias coff.. They were large and in good condition. I super glued them to a large ornament in my 55 gallon Pleco/guppy tank. They really are a show plant.

Amazing textured plant

It came in very good and many more leaves then the one I purchased a year ago but it normally grows very slow but with addition of the co-op’s root tabs and lead has already sprouted under 2 weeks

Big beautiful healthy

Really pleased with this plant. Bigger than I expected with lots of healthy leaves. Gorgeous plant.

Another terrific Anubias!

The Anubias coffeefolia arrived in tip-top condition with nary a blemish on any of its beautiful leaves! It has beautiful leaves and will soon put out its first new leaf for me. A larger Anubias that should be on everyone's "must have" list! Yet another WONDERFUL plant from Aquarium co-op! Thanks!
