Is anbuias nana golden closer to the size of nana or petite?

Hello everyone!

I have a cute little 1 gallon tank set up on my desk that I plan on growing as many of the smaller variations of anubias in as possible (I am obsessed with anubias )
Anyways, I have a petite and a pinto in there right now, and it's still very bare, so I was tracking down some golden. Is the size of golden more on the slightly medium side like nana? or on the more micro side like petite? From pictures on google it looks more like petite sized, but I thought I should ask because new nana leaves are pretty tiny as well.

Thanks for any help!

It is in between but closer to petite (little larger)
This is petite (foreground) and golden(background) some petite are right against the golden so you can get an idea of size.

Due to photobuckets bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my old photos helpful.

Awesome, thanks Aqua!

Think I might get some to put in the middle, and have some regular nana or wavy leaf nana in the background with the petite and pinto in the foreground :)

Mine is more the size of Nana and quite a bit bigger than 'petite.' Everything I've read says it can reach up to eight inches but six is more normal but growth is slower than Nana.

www.bamaplants.com has Golden.

Then mine is a weird hybrid (perhaps someone cross pollinated a golden with a petite) because I've had it nearly 2 years and its stayed rather small.

Could be. Or someone sold you a mislabeled plant. As I learned when cultivating African violets: There are always exceptions and you don't always get what you pay for.

There's a seller named 'Aquamoos' on ebay and aquabid. They're located in Germany but it didn't take longer than a week to get to me in North Carolina. I ordered off of ebay for $19 (super cheap for pinto!)

Anubias Nana 'Pinto' Super Neu Und RAR Weiße Anubias Anubias White | eBay

I got a plant with about 10 leaves, very healthy and well packaged :)


You can see it on the bottom right there with the white leaves, very beautiful and I highly recommend snatching some up especially for so cheap.

Also that picture is not of the 1 gallon, just in case anyone thinks it is xD I had enough of a rhizome to split the pinto into 2 pieces, so I was able to put some into my king's 10 gallon :) I figured it best to have the plant in 2 tanks, just in case it didn't do well in one of them.
