55 Gallon Tank Can these plants be burried?

Gameynerd23

Hello, I was wondering which plants of the ones I have can have their root buried without issue. I know Anubias doesn't like its rhizome buried, but a pet store employee also told me it doesn’t like its roots buried either. Anyway, here's a list of the plants I have/ am going to get soon.

Anubias Nana
Anubias Nana Golden
Golden Lloydiella (Golden Creeping Genny)
Amazon Sword
Red Amazon Sword
Red Ludwigia
Dwarf Sag.
Crypt Wendtii
One I can't identify, but it has red stems and green leaves.

You can grow Anubius on rocks or driftwood. The roots will lock to just about anything. You are correct about not wanting to bury the rhizome. All the other roots should be okay to bury. Here’s a photo of anubius roots in sand after 40 days

edit: some people do secure the rhizome with aquarium glue or a plant weight before submerging.

  • As far as I know it is okay if the anubias roots go into the substrate.
  • Plant swords and crypts in substrate, but not too deep. The crown (the place where the leaves come out) shouldn't be below the surface of the substrate. Burying them too deep probably won't kill them, but they won't do well.
  • I'm not familiar with the other plants on your list.
