It's a small one with lots of small leaves, and is in good shape. I would love to hear how other people plant these plants with the plastic basket off and the cooal whatever on.
Knock the wool or anything else left on the root's off in a bucket of tank water or small bowl and then see if it won't stay planted.
If not,,you may need to increase the depth of substrate at area where you want the plant to sit.
