Putting Down Roots?

How do u make the roots of your plants stronger n longer ?

If I put either a root tab in the hole where I got my Anubis plants in driftwood will they be able to get the nutrients from it of will it just burn the roots and kill it, or can I use clay mixed with dry ferts?

Feed them with good nutrients in a substrate that allows them to grow that way. You can try cutting them and replanting every so often but that can disrupt the growth of the pretty parts of the plant.
