the plant is growing in sand its roots are in the sand spreading out a long way from the plant in the sand and under the filter housing the plants rhizome sits on its roots about 4 cm off the surface the plant itself is very large and is 5x bigger than when purchased there is a one year fertiliser stick onder the main mass of roots the water is soft and its in a well cycled tank containg mostly small ciclids i have other plants that are turning into nothing due to fish abuse but the anubias is untoched i have a dwarf anubias grownig in the same tank in the substrate thats doing fine so im really out of ideas on why its doing what its doing
A one year fert stick may not have lasted one year. I put root tabs under my crypts once a months or so and they tabs are gone before I replace them even though the root tabs are supposed to last 3 months. Anubias really like to have their roots imbedded in the gravel so you are doing well. Many say that the roots are unimportant but I have found that my Nana mopes for about 3 weeks if I trim the roots and when they get back into the substrate the leaves come out stronger than ever. I would say try another whole or maybe a partial fert stick or try dosing some NO3. The other plants might be using it up before the Anubias is getting what it needs.
