Anubius coffeefolia boasts large, heavily ridged leaves. Juvenile forms of the plant often have reddish brown leaves. However, as the plant matures, the leaf color changes to a dark, vibrant green. Like other members of the Anubiasspecies, this variety is slow growing.
Anubias coffeefolia have medium light requirements but need regular fertilization with iron-based supplements for optimal growth.
Propagation of Anubias coffeefolia is relative easy with cuttings. To ensure optimal growth if planted in substrate, however, ensure the rhizome of divided plants is always above the substrate.
