Ah, I'm beginning to see where I misread the signals! I DID have it with the longer anchor roots in the substrate, but the rhizome above (on a sliver of slate), and there was a new leaf emerging. But the older leaves were melting (very crypt-like) so it confused me. I should have just left well enough alone, but I got nervous (I usually do really well with crypts, they like my tanks) and moved it. That move, coupled with the "experiment" was unfortunate. When I uprooted it, there WAS a lot of new root growth. (*kicking self once more*).
It sounds like it needs more light than most anubias, too.
Well, I'll know next time, if I get the opportunity again. Chalk it up to the learning curve.
Thanks for all the information! I wish the timing had been different, so I could have known to pick YOUR brains before doing my blunder-move. Oh well.
Thanks! This is an interesting plant!
