Question Potted water sprite?

Just a quick question about my new plant! I FINALLY got a hold of some water sprite for Squishy's tank. The only kind I could get was potted though. So, will it do best if I just leave it in the pot, or should I take it out and stick it on my drift wood?

And it had long leaf stems, but some of them must have gotten bent/snapped when it was shipped. Will they turn into new plants, or just die?

With right water temp and light, it should grow new leaves. I like plants holding and growing on driftwood.

It's up to you but yeah, you can leave it potted . It's a hardy plant so don't worry about the damage, just cut off any really dead parts/dying leaves.

It was all rooted into the spongey stuff, so I just left it potted for now. Thanks!
