Fish4all, I see that you have another thread in which you state that anubias roots like to be buried in the substrate. I hadn't heard this. Do they do noticeably better when roots can get in substrate?

For me they seem to do much better once the roots get going and really bury themselves in the substrate. I have actualy tortured my Nana a couple times by removing old leaves and cutting the roots way back. Mostly because I needed to pull it out and the roots would not go back in the subtrate. Each time the plant "seems" to go into a root dedication period where all the energy goes into the roots and then once the roots disappear in the substrate the leaves come by the dozen it seems.

My anubias is planted on the substrate. I was exasperated when it hasn't taken roots on the wood for months and it was almost dying. So I planted it on the gravel and was taken aback when it began growing new leaves.
