Anubias - they can split at the rhizome? Do they grow new plants on the leaves?
-not sure about this one
Java fern - same as anubias?
Java fern forms plant lets on its leaves wen it's time to propagate. They usually only do that when they get to the end of their lives
Jungle Val's - sends new shoots through the gravel (I'm not quite sure exactly how that works) and I can cut it with sharp scissors like grass?
Java moss - if I cut this, will the part that I cut off continue to grow on its own?
You can cut it into pieces, this is a slow grower at first and then once it gets used to your water it'll end up growing at a pretty decent speed.
Hornwort - same as java moss?
Cut it in the middle of the stem, or wherever you want and replant the top
Water sprite - also same as java moss?
Also, it's fern based so if a leaf falls off, let it float and it'll form a new plant let from the leaf.
Propogation time is different for all the plants. Not sure about anubias, but with java moss it'll take quite a few months since it does it itself.
Jungle Val will send runners out when it is happy with water conditions...probably a month or two after having them
Hornwort is a fast grower, you could probably do that once a week or every other week
Java moss, it really just depends. I think I split mine 1x per month
Water sprite, probably every few weeks.
Not sure about moving an entire tank, but the plants aren't as fragile as you think. I uproot mine and toss them from one tank to another without any harm. I'm not careful at all unless I'm packing them up to ship.
Hope I answered everything well enough!
