Im not Positive the title is what the plant is, i looked through the plant database and that is what i could closely match visualy.

The plant in question is the string like leafed plant in the background


That picture was taken yesterday.

I came home today and saw this.


If you notice the bottom of the plant looks as if it is dying, and there are clearly roots spuring out from midway up the plant.

should i go ahead and cut the plant and replant it where the roots begin?


FYI same angle, different camera.

Not meaning to hijack the thread, but is there a way to prevent this rootiness? I have some rotalla that is pretty heavily rooted all the way up the stems... that and the leaves are all really small... any way to prevent/fix?

Increase the flow around the plant and trim the aerial roots as they grow. For some plants, it is a normal part of it's makeup and there is not much you can do.

Also, I agree with Laura that it is a Myriophyllum - possibly mattogrossense
