    DefaultAccidentally broke the roots off Balansae plant

    So like the title says I accidentally broke the roots completely off a balansae plant (crypt) when transplanting. I planted the roots and plant next to each other to see if there would be regrowth. Both the roots and plant are a good size and I didn't want to chuck it without giving it a chance. Anyone else do this and have have the plant/roots survive with a crypt?

    I removed all plants from one of my tanks about a year ago and still have crypt pop up from the substrate. I wouldn't count it out.

    If you don't bury the crown, the root should grow back
