Bringing my water wisteria back...
I've got some water wisteria in my tank, and it was doing really well. It grew to the top of the water and was spreading out along the surface, so I decided it was time to trim it and replant the parts that I trimmed. The replanted parts seem to be doing fine, but the original stems are looking like garbage now, with just looooooooong stems and very little plant at the top. I read an article that said when stem plants become all stem, you should uproot them and take the healthy parts off the top and replant them, and discard the rest. So how do I know where to cut them off at the top? I assumed that there should be some roots dangling from the nodes, but there are no roots... just leaves. With no dangling roots, am I correct in assuming that there will be no new growth if I replant the tops? Would it be better to trim the tops off and keep the roots that are at the bottom of the stem? Will new leaves grow from that? I'll go take some pictures...
