When plating Anubias into the substrate is it best to cut the roots short to plant easier or keep the roots and work around it?

You want to more or less sit it on the susbstrate. You want to keep the rhizome out in the open. You can bury just the roots if you want. Keeping them long may help hold the plant in place until they stick to the substrate.

Does this also apply when placing on driftwood?

Thank you for educating me on the matter. This was puzzling me on how to plant them without disturbing the rest of the fish tank.

I weigh my plants down with fishing line and stainless steel hex nuts. The nut can go into the substrate to hide it and the rhizome stays above ground. Good for smaller plants if you have lots of flow.
