Broad Leaf Ludwiga Melt During WC

I thought I'd share an incident so others don't repeat the same mistake:

I was doing tank maintenance yesterday, following my usual routine of pulling stem plants that have grown too large out of the tank and trimming them in the sink while doing a water change.

I guess I left the broad leaf ludwiga out of the tank for too long (perhaps 45 minutes or so) because when I went to plant it, all the leaves had become very limp and were falling off. I thought I'd killed all the plants! I quickly replanted them and so far they seem to have recovered.

BTW my purple comboda which was out of the tank for just as long seems fine.
