    What plant is this? I previously believed it to be amazon sword, but it has a definite rhizome. Now I think it might be a big anubias nana or lanceolata. It's taken this plant over 2 years to get this big. One pic is of the plant from ways away and the other is what i believe to be the rhizome. I wouldn't have put it in the foreground if I had known it would get so big lol.

    Looks like an anubias sp. to me as well, not sure which one though.

    Just looking at the rhizome formation and shapes of leaves. I have some experience with anubias and that one seems to growing in the same pattern that mine would.

    That's helpful. Dare i ask if you have any tips in propagating it?

    I would just use a sharp razor-blade and cut the rhizome to split the plant. If you don't like it in the front, just remove the entire plant, slice it into two or more pieces, and place them in more aesthetically pleasing locations.

    I think I'll do that. It has actually never been taken out of its pot. Thanks!

    I am not seeing anything that looks like a rhizome. I am seeing roots.

    A rhizome sprouts roots all up and down the stem, not all coming out of the bottom of the plant like you have.

    I clearly see a rhizome in the second pic, and the roots are sprouting throughout the length of the rhizome.

    But the thick, green trunk like thing: you don't think that's a rhizome? I wonder myself because there are roots growing off the trunk until a good 7 inches above the substrate. Both leaves and roots grow right next to each other, like the anubias in your link. It also occurred to me that it seems like the roots are coming out of the bottom of the plant because it has grown virtually straight up in my low light conditions. But then again, that also might mean it's not an anubias. Maybe partly my fault for not getting a better picture or angles lol.
