I've cut all the roots off of my anubias before so they sit flush against the wood, no ill effects what so ever. They grow new roots and will root themselves. An alternative to fishing line is you can super glue the rhizome against the wood.

I have also cut the roots with no problems. I attach mine with the tiny clear "rubber" bands they sell for doing hair in multiple braids (500 in a pack for $1). They are 1/2" in diameter but really stretch. I find them easier than fishing line.

I trimed the ends of the roots and just tucked them in the substrate lightly just enough to hold it in place and leaning againts the drift wood that i wanted it to atached to it takes time but worked out great

I used cotton thread that dissolved in about a month or two. by that time the plants have attached themselves.
