    I have an anubias nana, which was doing OK with its roots in the substrate (fluorite). I attached it to a piece of vertical driftwood I have. I know that the nana has a horizontal rhizome, but will it hurt the plant to have it oriented vertically?

    I have a small anubias attached to a vertical piece of driftwood and it is doing perfectly fine, though the lower leaves are smaller... presumably due to the less available light.

    It shouldn't 'hurt' the plant, but it may take a while for the leaves to orient themselves for maximum light absorption. Because they are at a somewhat unnatural angle this might take some time, during which the plant might not grow as much or could lose a few leaves. Keep an eye on it. If you start to get worried grab a photo and toss it up so we can take a look.

    I attached my anubias horizontally and the rhizome has started to go vertical. Like DrNic says, "it shouldn't hurt the plant".
