You are buying 1 potted plant. Potted plants are much better to start with as they have their entire root system intact and makes it much better when transplanting.
Potted plants are started in rock wool. To plant remove as much
rock wool as possible. Most of the rock wool will pull off. If you
have any left and want it off shake the plants gently by holding it by the
roots and shaking in water. Leaving some rock wool will help anchor the plant
in your substrate.
To separate the plant into individual plants grab the
stems right above the root and pull gently. The roots
should separate if they don't stop pulling and try other stems.
Swirling this plant in water will help each individual
plant separate easier.
Only plant the root in your substrate, not any of the plant
itself or this can cause melting or shock, for
