    You could always just pull it out of the tank and get a better look at it. It won't stress out the plant or anything.

    It won't? I've taken water wisteria out for just 30 min. before, it dried up, and kind of faded out after it was replanted. Then again, wisteria is a totally different structure than the plants we are discussing here.

    I'm not advising leaving the plant out for that length of time, but there's no problem with briefly removing plants from an aquarium, otherwise there would be no way to transport them. Having sold plenty of plants myself, I'm used to constantly removing plants, laying them out, taking pictures, prepping them for shipping or pick-up, etc. With anubias, I would have them out of water for 15 minutes or so while I cut them up, glue them to rocks and wait for the glue to dry.

    I see lol, that makes sense.

    Why do you glue the anubias onto the rocks? Is that just how you sell them?

    Since they can't be buried, it just made it easier to manage them after I ran out of room in my driftwood to stick them in. I kept them spread throughout the tank bottom. I wouldn't sell them with the rocks though. I would just cut large sections off of them to sell and put what's left on the rock back into the tank to grow back.

    The leaves look anubias but the root area was throwing me off. Cut off dead leaves when you see them like that. It only takes away from the appearance and pulls nutrients away from the the rest of the plant.

    I tied mine to driftwood with fishing line. Whatever works.

    Oh ok. Thanks for all your help, by the way.

    That looks very much like an anubias congensis (I hope i got that spelling right). Long, strappy leaves that point upward, or upward-ish.

    I have one of those as well, and it looks very similar to what you have...it's rhizome also seems to grow vertically, which makes it hard to tell what it is.

    My plant and pictures online of the congensis do look very similar lol. That's an accurate guess. To propagate, I was planning on cutting up the rhizome and attaching the roots to a rock. the rhizome would be placed horizontally on top of the rock, with some leaves attached to the rhizome as well.
