    What are my options? I have an Anubias that has grown by following the shade. The rhizome has about 6" of no leaves, it all has roots. It's probably 12" overall length. The last 6" is a healthy regular plant.
    If I cut the part with the leaves off, will the rhizome with roots and no leaves grow leaves?

    It might do. I'd give it a shot. I've taken cuttings from a few of mine. At very least the plant will look nicer!

    Thanks, I haven't read that one. I read ones like it, ones that say exactly the opposite and ones that are off the deep end.
    As with most stuff in this hobby, I'll go with what I think is the most sensible. I'm going to cut slits in a few inches of it. See how that reacts, then depending on how I like that, I may just chop it up.
    The consensis is that a piece of rhizome, on it's own, will sprout leaves.
    Of course I have to contend with inverts dying because of it, and the whole tank dying because of it, the plant withering away, and the moon collapsing in on itself.
