Anubias trimming roots

Postby SparkyST » Thu Oct 18, 2012 9:29 am

Hi guys

Just a quick questions, I have 2 lumps of Anubias attached to 2 small pieces of bogwood. Over the last 2 weeks its been growing like mad. The roots are starting to push the bog wood over onto its side, can I trim back the offending roots with out any repercussions to the plants?

I just cut sections of my plant off to make several smaller plants, saves buying more plants or you can sell off the removed bits. Make sure you leave roots on each part you chop off.
You can just trim some of the roots if you want.
