    I would just go around the plant? Not sure to be honest.

    Hover the syphon over the gravel to lift surface detritus. Particle that fall into the gravel will help fertilise the plants.

    I just go around the plant. Leave like an inch or so of space and they be fine. And roots you come across will be fine, even if you may break a few off.
