My tanks are very low-tech really, so plant growth is slow. I only dose with Excel once a week - if I remember to do so. I was hoping to place the smaller bits into my 29g because I have a lot of room in there, but the substrate is not ideal for any type of plant right now. I had thought that the plantlets would have time and room enough to grow until I have the time and money to re-do the aquarium. By that time they would be transferred to driftwood or some other decor.
As I mentioned, the tank is low-tech, so the plantlets are quite modest. One is large enough to transfer, having over 5 leaves of its own and decent roots shooting out. Two more will be large enough in a month or so. They also have good roots right now, but only 2-3 leaves each.
Then there is that leaf on my other fern plant...it looks like it's dying, hanging on by a mere thread. Yet on its entire surface there are about 20 leaves. They have not grown much at all in 3 months time and I'm afraid the "mother" will completely separate and they will all die as a result. I am just not sure what to do about it. I wasn't planning to add CO2 to the 10g, but would doing so cause these little guys to grow faster to a point where I can pluck them before the mother leaf completely dies off? I don't have a macro, so here is a not-so-great shot to sort of illustrate
