How do I plant this?



I received this plant and wasnít told how I should plant it, do I separate it or is one plant? I has runners growing in the water but not in the substrate.
I appreciate any help & suggestions, thank you in advance, Dar

I would split up the largest clumps into smaller plugs but I find that making every plug a single plant is a good way of getting a lot of them to die. Just my experience.

This, so much...


I can't even guess how long it took for me to split all mine up and plant them all one at a time. I think it took almost as long to plant them as it did to watch it all die.

Hello,
Iím not quite sure what to do with this plant. Right now I planted it in the substrate but it doesnít look very nice. My Bosemani Rainbows seem to like it and Iím hoping they will use it to lay their eggs and Iíll get some babies . Other than that I definitely would not get this plant again. Thank you
