They can grow both in the aquarium substrate and can be attached to driftwood or rocks, where their root system will gradually take hold of these harder surfaces.

Be careful if you plan to plant it in the substrate, as this could cause the rhizome to rot. I would make sure you have as much of the rhizome exposed as possible.

Yup, it appears that all anubias varieties have rhizomes and therefor do better with it above substrate level. Good luck, its a lovely plant!
