Oh thanks. The ryhzome or however you spell it has to be above the sand because it is all attAched to a rock by fishing line on top of it. The roots haven't attached to the rock yet and how long will that take for me?

A few months. Sounds like you are on the right track. I say trim the brown leaf or leaves, and give it some time. Nothing good happens quickly in an aquarium
