hi, i have some staurogyne growing emersed but it has now shot up and it at the top of the container. so it will not get any taller. as i only have one stem, i would like to gain more, so is there anyway to trim it so i get another stem or generally how do you trim it so it will grow back. i put the other stem in my tank and that has gone bushier rather than taller. i prefer the bushier low lever version!! but i just need a bit of help.
many thanks.

If you've still got somewhere to grow it emersed, just put the top of the plant there and it will quickly grow roots.

I couldn't believe the size of the root system for such a small plant.

cool thanks its the stuff you sent me, one of the plantlets went into a tank and the other im growing emersed must be 4 inches (10cm) tall. its doing really well, the PH that is growing emersed is putting out fresh new growth all the time. again i put one in the tank and that is growing well in an inert substrate, with me fertilising whenever i remember, normally every other day. co2 is from my Fe which is at a good level. so thanks again mate. :D
