Anubias, like Java Fern, should not be planted in the substrate. If the rhizome is buried, it usually rots and the plant will die.
Attached these plants to wood or rock. The fine true roots may work their way down into the substrate (be it sand or fine gravel) but you shouldn't force them into it.
And BTW, we have plant profiles with photos, and both Water Sprite ande Wisteria are included [click shaded names]. The profile on WS mentions the different species and leaf forms.
