Jungle val uprooting?

So I have a jungle val in my 75gal that in recent months started to slowly uproot. Before that, I had to move my tank which meant taking out the jungle val completely and replanting it. I also added hygrophilia which began to overtake the tank. The jungle val havent been doing so, well after the move and the hygrophilia explosion.

Everytime I bury the roots it slowly uproots again...

Does anyone know whats going on? Why is it uprooting?

For jungle vals, healthy roots should be 6"++. Two possibilities: a) substrate compaction b) hygro using up P.
