Re: UnReliably Removing Rubin Remains
john wheeler asked about removing a rubin.
If there is a sizeable bit of "meat" below the surface, you can prune
off all of the leaves and expect new growth to pop up. This has been
my experience, whether I wanted return growth or not :-\ .
On the other side of the coin, you needn't get all of the roots to
transplant. I cut around the base of a robust rubin that had gotten
big enough to compete with another rubin for space (and light). I cut
aaround it a few inches away from the core, pruned it back severely,
and then stuck the plant in a tank that had enough gravel space to
plant it. The plant actually laughed at me (I heard it), and
proceeded to take over it's new home in a matter of weeks.
