uprooted plants: will they still grow fine?!
I have some smaller crypt.species, lays really flat to the ground but have wavey leaves unlike crypt parva. Unknown to me what it is.
Anyhow, the odd one tends to get uprooted to the point where its just out of the substrate but caught in other plants close by so it doesn't float away. This also happens to the odd stem from various species I have.
If I were to leave them.in place would the plant still grow and thrive? Must the roots be in the substrate? It seems its always the same few plants this happens to, I hate constantly replanting.
