So I figured I would update
I decided to re-scape the tank that the sideways anarchis was in so my experiment is over.
Since planting it the 23rd I didnt notice much change. The plant stayed healthy and bright green but was growing VERY slowly, not anywhere near the rate that the anarchis growing planted and vertically does. I did notice a new shoot growing in last week, grew about 1/2 - 3/4" in the past week. When I removed it from the substrate neither the top or bottom of the stem had any discoloration or anything.
Basically, my anarchis grew sideways, but slowly compared to the vertical ones.
It stayed just as healthy as all the other stems though.
