How to propogate anacharis properly?
So I am trying to grow a stand of the stuff in a 10 gallon tank. Only problem is that I am starting with 1 or two stems from another tank. At what point is it safe to break off and plant the little "child" plant that grows off the side? Also, it always seems like the parent greatly suffers in health during this process and might not be alive? For example, very short leaves and just a stem. Doesn't look very good at all...is it possible to keep a stem after it reproduces?
Sorry if the answers to these questions are obvious, but I am new to the hobby and have done some searching around the forums without too much luck.
