Provided that it has had good light and CO2, up to that point, it should
have a lot of food stored in its rhizome, which should be about the size
and shape of a marble in a young plant when the leaves have just become 6-7
inches long.  I would think it would easily recover from moving. Just have
some other plants around it at its new location, and, of course, it should
have good light again.
