Well...I started to thin my crypt jungle and boy was I surprised. The root systems are amazingly large and long. Here's a pic of what I'm dealing with.

Now...my question...should I trim these back before replanting and if so...how much safely without affecting the plant?

The more you trim, the more leaves are likely to melt.

Then again, you're dealing with Crypts so they're likely to melt anyways...

Personally, I only trim off what I can't get to stay down under the substrate after I've planted.
