Anubias barteri var. barteri
Schott 1860

Native to Nigeria and Cameroon. It's 20-45 cm tall.

I bought one plant in 2011, I think in the nursery it had been growing emerse, but in the shop it was in an aquarium.
I don't know how long it had been underwater, the leaves tissue began to decompose in some places.
The lower and the upper geniculum.
The first leaf grown in my florarium appeared olive-brownish.
The first and the second leaf.
The abaxial surface of the leaves.
It lost almost all the old leaves and the new ones were very stiff, almost horizontally arranged.
