Hi @WZ9V,

Most anubias and java ferns today are grown emersed (out of water). The emersed leaves have a thick cuticle layer that prevents them from 'breathing' underwater. Most plants that are grown emersed lose their leaves and develop new 'submerged' leaves that are adapted to live in water. Show some patience, as long as the rhizome is green and firm (not mushy) it is likely new leaves will emerge over time.
