eaten jungle val

i have a few jungle val plants in my tank that my swordtails seem to have found very tasty and have eaten them down to little tiny stumps . they aren't dead, they just aren't likely to do much in that tank for a while (if ever). are plants particularly picky about water temps? i was thinking i'd take them out with a little bit of substrate and put them in a jar with tank water and fertilizer and put it on my desk to see if they would grow back at all. any reason this wouldn't work?

With adequate light and some nutrients they should grow. Window daylight will suffice for light if it is bright.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
