Looking for plants that will grow in sand or graft to drift wood

Anubias and Java fern can do both.....but

They are best attached to rocks or driftwood..... roots can be planted keeping rhizome above the substrate....if you plant the rhizome in the substrate it will rot and the plant will die

Lots of crypts do well in sand (C.balansae does well in hard water). Aponogetons do well as well.

Heres a pic of my tang tank. Its a 2 foot depe tank, some of those C. balansae leaves are over 2 feet long. Many hydrophila do well in hard high ph. Strangely Ive found that vals do ok for a while but eventually just die off in really hard water.

Anubia and java fern can do ok in the substrate but usually die off as the rhizome rots when under the substrate.

Fantastic photo Noddy65.

Jarva Fern, Anubias as has been mentioned, but also spawning moss also go well on wood.
