I was transplanting my S. Rubra, and when I took the sphagnum moss from around them I began to rinse what looked like the rhizome to me (im not unfamiliar with plant anatomy) off and it just fel off. I didn't use a strong stream of water. It liked like a piece of bark. Was that the rhizome? I just poured the water on it. They still have some all its roots (there weren't any on the rhizome) Will this hurt my plant?
Luckily it was a plant from lowes and it was only five dollars. when I did get the plant separate from the moss I noticed I had two separate plants in my hand.
