Hi,

Originally planted three Cryptocoryne, bronze-ish types and they are all doing well, however need to remove at least one of them as they are geting too big .

While I know many plants are propogated and grown on in Air, whats the chance of reverting a submerged one back to Air ?

If we potted it up into a light soil/perlite/vermiculite mix and covered it in a plastic bag for some weeks would it make a successful transition ?

Absolutely, as it is a marginal plant it can be subjected to periods of inundation and being left high and dry, depending on the period length the plant may choose to signal tissue destruction in its leaves to regrow more suitable structures for the changed environment.
