Hey guys I was tearing down my tank to clean it well and I noticed this plant is rooting down into the gravel that I have in the back and I'm wondering if I can seperate the two stalks...
Can they be seperated and how do I go about it.
Should I just clip off that one stalk that has died off a bit on the left in the 3rd pic? Or can it still produce?
I'm not even sure what type of plant this is. I got it at Petco.

I'm thinking I could cut off each stalk and then plant them seperately...they all have roots and it will give me 3 plants.....am I right with this assumption?

Thanks a lot for all the help :)

That's an Aglaonema, and yes, you can cut them apart - I would use a sharp knife, of pruning shears - Try to get each piece with some root, if you can. (If not, they will still root anyway.) Super easy.

Yeah each stalk has a root.
That knub one broke off....the one in the that doesn't have any leaves and I planted it. It use to have some branches. Is there a chance it will grow anymore?

Thanks :)
