Yes to the first question, as long as they are cut in the proper spot.

And about the lead, lead is attached? Does it keep it in a bunch? Try burying them very deep!

Where is the right spot to cut the plant to re plant it?

Seanh84 nice work! I started with the builders sand then as I said adding in a bag of Florite along with the Flourish tabs, daily dose of Excel and iron, then bang I had huge growth without the $$ of co2 injection. Keep posting weekly pics so we can see your growth! Nice work so far.

All my swords started out as 2 plants totaling around 20 leaves. I just split them up and spread them about. As soon as i added fert they just rocketed. Only just added the others but unsure what they are ?
