I have read the wonderful DW book. Many successful planted tank folk swear 
that a soil substrate is the best.

Having said that, after 3 years at this, I absolutely cannot fathom how you 
can uproot, move, replant, or do anything else to a plant in a tank with a 
soil substrate. Given that stem plants require trimming and replanting 
every 1-3 weeks, this is not an idle question. I tried it, failed 
miserably, and dumped the gravel and soil in a flower bed where it sits to 
this day reminding me of my ineptitude.

In the event that you can figure out how, under 18 inches of water, to move 
or replant a plant without releasing gobs of soil into the water, I wish 
you luck!
