I'm currently reaquascaping an aquarium and put six large Swords up on Aquabid for a good home. They were simply to nice to toss onto the compost pile.
At any rate, the Swords are still in the tank. Seeing how Swords have a massive root system (they've been thriving in the tank for 10 months). Should I trim the roots back pryer to shipping them or just uproot them and ship the entire root ball. I'd hate to cut the roots back aggressively, only to have half the plant die when they reach thier new home.
This is the first time I have ever shipped plants. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. TIA
