Whoops... Poor Wisteria.

I left for vacation and it appears my wisteria was not happy with the amount of light it got while I was gone. It has maybe three or so leaves left on it. It's been reduced to a stem.
I wondered if there's a way I can cut it to make it grow back? The stem is still green, so I thought about cutting it halfway down and letting it grow back.
Thoughts?

Wisteria will grow from a leaf. How long has in been in your aquarium?

I've had it for months, since the beginning of this year. It's always done well and grown nicely, it just didn't get enough light this week while I was gone and it lost all its leaves practically.

Yea, I'm sure it will. I just wondered since I've heard of people cutting the stem halfway down to make it grow back in if that'd be easier.

In my experience once there is a root structure this plant is pretty much bullet proof. I kill lots of plants. This one is still around.

Alright. I'll leave it and see if it grows back, if not I'll cut the stem halfway down.
