    I trimmed some moneywort and replanted the trimmings today. I think I might have planted one upside down. Just for kicks, what happens if I leave it upside down? Could it possible adjust or is it doomed?

    The leaves may rotate a bit, like if you grow a stem floating on the surface it sort of grows flat, but I imagine it'll die off eventually. I'm not 100% but I'd imagine it might rot at the end in the substrate.

    Interesting to know what happens though :)

    I've planted Rotala Rotundifolia upside down before. The leaves looked a bit odd as it bent 'against itself' to reach the light. Growth levels and health were completely unaffected. I was expecting rotting but there wasn't any.
