    So the roots have to be just freely in the water?

    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.

    You can cut it and start a new plant

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