just wondering if anybody has had any luck splitting a anubias and attaching it onto drift wood. i tried with a rubber band but it broke down and fell apart before the roots could take hold. any feedback would be appreciated
cheers

use fishing line or cotton. rubber bands are not the best as they break up

Try some black, thin zip ties that electricians use. The thin ones are shorter so you have to hook several together to get around larger driftwood. You'll have to cut them off when the roots take hold of the wood. I get mine at Home Depot, Lowes, or any hardware store here in the middle of the U.S. Check the electrical area of your local home supply store.

That is strange, an elastic band usually works for me.
The cable ties is also something I use rather than cotton as I always fear my bn will get snagged in the cotton.
