 Hi  all
 Please  see  the  photograph  below  :  .
 
 This  is  one  of  the  plants  I  have  had  from  day  one  ie  5  months  ago.  What  is  the  name  of  this.  It's  growing  where  I  had  planted  hygrophilias.  It  is  close  to  the  location  of  the  aponogatons.  The  leaf  does  not  look  like  the  hygrohilia  nor  do  my  existing  aponogatons  have  a  stem  like  these.  In  the  old  ones  the  leaves  break  out  from  the  base.
 
 Also  do  I  cut  the  plant  as  shown  in  the  photograph  and  plant  the  top  ?  What  do  I  do  with  the  bottom  part  ?
 
 A  number  of  these  ball  shaped  parts  with  a  couple  of  leaves  keeps  breaking  away  and  I  have  not  been  able  to  plant   it  so  that  it  survives.
 
 Thank  you  in  advance
 Regards
 Maninder  Singh

 It  is  an  aponogeton  crispus,  that  too  a  mother  plant.
 
 Yes  --  cut  the  rhizome  and  replant  after  they  have  grown  at  least  a  couple  roots.  The  bigger  the  rhizome  when  you  cut  it  the  more  energy  it  has  stored  and  the  better  the  chances  of  plantlet  to  survive.
 
 After  you  remove  the  plantlet  you  can  remove  the  stalk  if  you  want.  Cut  it  from  the  bottom,  if  you  pull  the  mother  plant  might  get  uprooted.

 Not  too  sure  about  this
 But  my  understanding  is  that  A.  Crispus  is  a  bulb  plant.  Mine  doesn't  look  anything  like  that.  So  I  don't  think  that  it's  A.  Crispus
 
 I  might  be  wrong,  I  am  just  a  dumb  newbie

 Thank  you  Arnab,
 Correct  me  if  I  am  wrong  and  pl  do  ignore  my  ignorance  :
 I  allow  the  rhizome  to  stay  on  the  plant  till  it  gives  out  roots.
 I  then  cut  off  the  rizome  and  then,  do  I  plant  it  so  that  the  rizome  is  above  the  subtrate  as  in  the  case  of  Anubias  or  can  it  be  burried  and  than  pulled  out  so  that  the  rizome  just  shows  above  the  substrate  and  the  rest  of  the  rizome,  roots  and  the  cut  stem  is  burried  ?
 Regards
 Maninder

 I  too  was  under  the  impression  that  the  A  crispus  is  a  bulb  plant
 I  am  a  newbie  too  now  learning  to  pronounce  the  names  of  the  palnts  leave  alone  how  to  propagate  them.
 That  too  at  a  post  retirement  age  !!!!!!

 If  you  do  not  cut  it  from  the  stem,  you  will  see  roots  coming  out  of  the  bulb  and  stem  is  getting  rotten  slowly.  The  plantlet  will  then  flow  in  the  water  with  few  roots.  that's  the  best  time  to  replant  it.

 That's  precisely  it  --  you  do  not  need  to  keep  the  rhizome  exposed  to  water,  you  can  (and  should)  bury  it  keeping  just  the  crown  exposed.  FWIW,  with  A.  Crispus  --  sometimes  a  plantlet  itself  shoots  one  or  more  plantlets  --  you  can  just  plant  the  main  plantlet.

 BTW  --  with  A.  Crispus  at  least  --  the  bulb  IS  a  type  of  rhizome  :)
 
 Post-retirement  is  the  best  time  --  enjoy!

 This  is  aponogeton  crispus,  no  need  to  cut  the  plantlets,  they  will  detach  themselves  when  they  are  ready...

 May  be  aponogeton  ulvaceus  ?
 I  just  cut  it  from  the  stem[stalk?]  and  planted  it,  and  it  grew.  The  lower  stalk  will  then  rott  away.
 
 Good  luck!

 Thank  you   all  for  a  response  to  a  question  which  to  most  of  you  would  be  trivial  but  to  me  the  answers  have  been  extremely  educative.  I  suppose  that  is  one  of  the  functions  of  a  forum  such  as  IAH
