I have a couple of water wisteria (plants) growing in my tank. They are growing roots from various points down the stem, and are now growing out of the top of the tank. Can i cut them just below a root and then plant the top section as another plant? Will this kill the original plant, the cutting both or neither? Bearing in mind that nearly all the growth is occuring in the top inch or two of the plant.

First off let me welcome you to the board Matt. :hehe:

Sure you can cut off the tops and replant them They might take a couple days to get going but if your wisteria has already grown out of your tank then they should do just fine. This won't harm the plant. It can sometimes be beneficial for the plant!
