Do you have any pics? I would love to see your root system.
Leave the roots alone. What you have there is a good thing because the roots by a process called guttation that takes place within the plant itself draws water up via the roots bringing new water into the substrate along with some oxygen. Roots also put oxygen directly into the substrate which is a good thing.Hey TPT,
I am fixing to dirt my 55g, and I have quite a few rooted plants. Their roots can be seen when looking at the bottom of my tank threw the stand, and most of their roots are going from one side of the tank to the other!!!:icon_eek: So when I try to remove them what will be the best way, so I won't damage the plants?
I have a Aponogeton longiplumulosus that has a HUGE root structure, as well as some BIG CRYPT Mother plants. The green has 50+ leaves, and the Brown has at least 30. They have MANY daughter plants shooting up all around them too! Also I have a tiny Ozelot Sword and a unknown sword that has 40+ leaves and is around 8" total hight. The rest of my plants are stems and Java ferns, so no worries there.
Thanks for any help Yall can provide!
