Moving plants to a new tank?

About three months ago I started what turned out to be my first planted tank in a very small 5 gallon tank. Everything has taken off and exploded in my tank. I'm getting ready to upgrade to a 20 gallon tall tank. I don't plan on moving all the plants, but is there a science to doing it so you don't end up killing them?

I feel my biggest obstacle is going to be my water wisteria. Here is the tank just for the hell of it.

I've got one water wisteria, 3 anubias nana, 2 java fern, 1 red ludwigia, and that crazy java thing in the bottom left corner.

If you're going to be using the same water and similar lighting/co2/ferts and similar substrate, I don't see why it would be an issue at all. It would be the same as moving a plant around in your current tank almost.
