anubius question
 
here is a dumb question, are all varieties of anubius able to grow on your drift wood or other hard surface..Anubias Congensis is what i am looking at, but havent heard of it planted this way..

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!
