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
