Hygrophila rosae australis - roots shooting out from all over the stems, help!

My tank has been set up for about 7 weeks and everything is looking really good and growing well. The problem is the Hygrophila Rosae Australis is growing like crazy with lots of tiny roots shooting out from the whole length of the stems making it look really messy.

I have been trimming it to thicken the growth but I cannot find anything about how to deal with these roots. Is it ok to trim them off the side of the stem or do I need to cut the whole plant right back and start again keeping the roots under control from the start?
