what kind is this

i was wondering what kind of anubia is this? it just came in a tube labeled "assorted anubia" i was hoping to find any kind but im just curious... also.. if im not mistaken i think i read somewere i shldnt burry the stem looking thing? is that true? i have a sand cap and put a thin thin opping over some of mine as im adding new fish and dont want my betta knocking it over thus having to put it back every hour. should i let it float instead then? :[ i burried it very little. so im nt rly sure.

It looks like the one I have but I don know what kind it is. Nana something maybe??

Nope, you dont bury the roots. Either tie it to driftwood or some decor OR let it float free.

awe fail it looked so nice where i put it too :( may tie it to something in the morning perhaps. or float it.. i thought so but i know somewhere someone said you aint supposed to but you can put a few pebbles of gravel over it and its roots will grab hold? maybe im thinking of another thing with the rhy-madoodle bobber :\ was hoping with the word asorted id get 2 or 3 dif small anubia, like 2 or 3 kinds. but ig its still worth the like $5.34 i spent on it as woulda costed more then that to buy and ship :)

dont get me wrong. its abeautiful plant, just thought i could bury it :\ ill pull it up in the morning i suppose.. float it till i either decide were to put it on my driftwood or find a small lavarock/rock cave XD thanks for the help.
__
if anyone can maybe id it? ik its hard to tell if its a small one or large [im thinking nana sence its so small and has a huge root as seen. but if im not mistaken these grow SLOOOOW so could go either way? :P

looks like anubias nana or anubias barteri. You can bury it, but you have to keep the large stem above the surface or it begins to rot.

At a glance I'd agree that it is an Anubias nana. It has the potential to grow and seem more like a bartei but it looks indeitcal to two A. nana that I currently have so that's just my guess.

Do you mean the rhizome? The large, thick "root" where all the roots and stems/leaves come from is referred to as the rhizome, as long as this stays above the substrate you shouldn't have any problems. I've read of people who have buried their Anubias' roots so I think it's all down to personal preference and willingness to experiment.

"There will come a time when three words uttered with charity and meekness shall receive a far more blessed reward than three thousand volumes written with disdainful sharpness of wit."

huh. all my nanas have thinner stems than that.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
