To my knowledge, Anubias is propogated by cutting off a portion of the rhizome (with a couple or more leaves attached) and placing it elsewhere. The leaf is more likely something else...any chance of a photo?

Not Anubias, definitely; and while not too easy to see I tend to agree with Boredomb on it being a JF daughter plant. This plant also has a rhizome (the name for what you referred to as the fat root). The rhizome of both plants should not be buried or it may rot. Attach it to rock or wood.
