Yes. The roots don't have to be submerge in the substrate. The only hard rule with anubias is never bury the rhizome in the substrate.

That is fine too, Anubias naturally grow outside of the water in high humidity and will be submerge during flood season.

I've grown Anubias out of water in a high humidity terrarium before.

So what should I do when it comes out of my tank?

You can cut it and start a new plant
No actually I want it to be out but how should I make a humid place for it

Depends, sometimes growing out of the tank will allow sufficient humidity
