[APD] Re:Barclaya longifolia enquiry

........ I read in Dennerle's handbook that this plant does not cope well with being shifted around. I REALLY like this plant and will not be able to get my hands on another one. Should I leave it and wait for a bud to harvest the seeds or do I take my chances and transplant?
It would look fantastic in the 29g but I'm scared I'll kill it if moved? Any suggestions? Is this plant really that sensitive?

Kind Regards

I have not had a lot of experience with this species, but it does have a fairly large rhizome that stores food energy. If the leaves die back, there is a lot of energy stored to produce another crop of leaves. I would think that it would survive the transplant and, that if growing conditions were good in your 29g, it should recover rapidly.
