Remove the pot and the mineral wool carefully from the roots. Remove the outermost leaves as they will die under water under any circumstances and the plant will rapidly develop new leaves adapted to conditions under water. Shorten the roots and spread them when planting. Remove whole leaves from the base when trimming, pinch off off shoots and replant.
