29 Gallon Tank When to cut runners and how to replant.

GusMcGrath202020

Hello evryone! I am rescaping my 29 gallon and I pulled up all my jungle val, dwarf sag, and dwarf hairf grass and they are sending out runners! Should replant them with the runners underneath the substrate or above? Should I cut them? Thank you in advance. pics below are the jungle Val

I cut them then plant them. It doesnt really matter though they will send new ones.

When StarGirl says filled, she means really FILLED! :hilarious:

Anyways, just plant a runner if it has roots on it. Trim the connecting stem and plant the separate plants with the crown remaining above the substrate line. If the runner has no roots, it will have a much harder time getting established, but as StarGirl says more runners will grow anyways once the plants get established again. Happy planting. ;)
