I personally wouldnít try it. Itís more likely a waste of money and resources than not. Africans will just shred them, uproot them, etc.

You can get away with plants most the time with SA and CA Cichlids but not Africans that I've ever seen.

It is possible to use plants, but it doesnít always work. Itís worth at least trying out with an anubias. You might be surprised
