Could be a lot of things.

Can you tell us more about the tank? (Size, substrate, types of plants being uprooted)

7 aquariums, 4 terrariums, 6 cats.

skipping ahead

i wish they sold these in N. America :(
JBL Plantis - Aquarium Plant Pegs Shop UK : Aquarama.co.uk Buy JBL Plantis - Aquarium Plant Pegs

i don't live in the UK :(

Edit:
would give the plants more time to establish a root system to anchor themselves.
granted that ignores if fish are pulling them up, but i would love to have some of these, ... in time.
