First trip - chuck the bottoms?

    My Rotala is coming up for its first trim. It was grown from its emersed form and therefore the lower sections are not as healthy-looking as the tops. For a first trim, is it best to chuck the lower halves and just replant the tops?

    Top-cuttings of Rotala (I presume R. rotundifolia or R. sp 'bonzai', since grown from emersed) will allways root easily. Remember to remove lowest leaves, that will be pushed under gravel/soil, when cuttings are planted.
    If the low part, that is left after cutting is not pleasant to look at, just pull it out. The new cuttungs will soon take their place.
