Splitting CParva and Microsword into individual pieces
 
I just picked up the plants mentioned in the title. They are set up emersed. How do I split it up into individual pieces?

Crypt parva you can pull them apart at the base if theres mutli plants.

Microsword just cut between every few swords and plant each plug.
I usually plant in a checker board fashion and find that works best to get even coverage onces grown in.

Thanks for the info. I found info on microsword and thats what I did.

Stupid question on the Parva. I picked the Parva and it was in a plastic cup. Is that considered miltiple plants? When I looked at the roots they wre all intertwined so I would assume it is multuple.

Multiple plants implies multiple single plants with individual stems/roots (often intertwined if you have a pot of it). Go ahead and gently rip them from each other and plant them in bunches of 3-5 stems a piece and you should be good :proud:
