Anubias nana petite - how long can they survive in a bucket?

So, I bought several gorgeous clumps of ANP from a fellow member. The tank they are going in isn’t ready (working on hard scape) so I placed them in a Tupperware bucket in the empty tank with tank water from my nano and have the lights on.

Can they last like this without CO2 for a few days?

They will be more than fine, I've kept some in a bucket for a month, barely any light, and came back fine. Just make sure from time to time to check it of course.

I left mine in a bucket outside for months and they actually did better than in the tank. just make sure that the water gets changed once in a while

I have a plastic tub of spare java ferns and anubias in my sunroom that get just a splash of afternoon sunlight and they are fine!

I bought some that got stuck in the mail for a month and saved all rhizomes, even though i lost a lot of the leaves. As others have said, you are good. Anubias doesn't do anything fast, including dying.
