This is a new, particularly beautiful Anubias cultivar, selected in the nursery Dennerle (Germany) from stands of the Bonsai Anubias. Massimo Iannella tested the plant in submerged and emersed culture for a long time and gave it the cultivar name 'Pangolino'. This plant is one of the Anubias forms with the smallest leaves at all and still a great rarity. Its growth habit is so compact that its leaves overlap each other, resembling the scales of the pangolin (scaly anteater).
The Pangolin Anubias is a first-class epiphyte for the hardscape of small and nano tanks. It is as robust and undemanding as other forms of Anubias barteri var. nana.
