does the umbrosum one grow runners or just grow low?
thanks

for me it's just growing low. a stem "crawls" horizontally, and from each node?....a new shoot develops giving a dense look. i did want it to grow upwards, but i quite like the low growth. especialy as its growing amongst the crypts and e tenellus

HM can be trained to grow as a carpet and many american aquascapers do, it's one for a bigger tank though.
