 Nice.  How  do  you  trim  it?  Just  like  other  stems  or  everytime  replant  the  top?

 Hi  Tirtha,  I  just  did  trimming  on  the  rotala  yesterday,  if  I  get  to  snap  a  pic  today,  I  will  post  it  up  later  Very Happy
 For  me,  I  just  trim  the  stem,  and  replant  the  top.  I  don't  prefer  to  pull  the  roots,  discard  the  lower  part,  and  replant  the  top,  as  I  tink  it  will  disturb  the  substrate  a  lot  Sad
