Default Slight Emergency - Need to move plants

I have a 10" bowl at work that is planted with 5 shrimp in it. Last week I was rotating it to show it off to a co-worker and where I grabbed at the top it cracked. I can take off a piece of it and the crack started to run down. Basically I need a new bowl or an alternative.

I plan to take most of the water out and try and catch the shrimp in there and transfer them home into another tank in the meantime. My biggest thing though is the plants.

This was a dry-start setup and I know the roots of the dwarf sag and other plants are very deeply rooted. Is there an easy way to get the plants out of the bowl to transfer them into another setup or am I best just yanking them all out and replanting again? (which will suck because of how much the dwarf sag has grown out since I started it)
