I've recently started using live plants in my 29 gallon aquarium, and at the end of the semester, I always take my aquarium home since the aquarium can't go more than a week without feeding the fish, water changes, etc. What is the best way to transport the plants that have already rooted into the gravel?Crypts in particular are prone to melting, so I'm especially worried about transporting those. What would you guys suggest?

A 29 gallon is small enough that you can just drain all but 1"-2" of water.
Put plastic over the top to prevent evaporation.

No need to uproot or move any plants, should be OK.
Of course they'll be a little shocked when you set it back up, but i think that's the best way to do it.
