My anubis has been growing like crazy. I know I initially planted it incorrectly by putting in the gravel,, but it has flourished. flourished so well infact that it is starting to grow up the corner of my tank. Im wondering if its ok to just snip the rhizome at the desired legnth(inbetween segments of course).

Next,, where will the new growth come in at on the original rhizome. I can tell one end was already cut/broken. And if I cut the other end,, where will the new growth start from?

Any and all info is greatly appreciated as this is my second oldest living plant and I dont want to injure it or hamper its growth.

The new cutting will be properly placed on the opposite side of the tank on my new piece of driftwood.

Below are the pictures of it starting its upward journey. Another question would be,, will the rhizome flatten out again,, i mean its growing vertical now,, where before the rhizome looked to be a roll of lifesavers,, now it looks more like an aloe vera plant. it is however sprouting atleast a root from each individual segment.


And a full shot plus some bosie and my snail problems.

The old one will continue growing from where the growth is now, the cut one will start growing from where you cut it. Be sure both peices have a decent amount of leaves.

Very nice looking plant. When you cut it make sure to have a desent amount of leaves and 'roots' on each section. You can bury the roots just make sure to leave the rimzone above the gravle.
