A really brilliant thread, is there any chance of a picture showing how densely you plant the stems as I'm finding it incredibly difficult to get my rotalla green to form anything near to the bushes you have.

This is a great thread I appreciate you putting this together for us. I'm just learning about pruning. I just have one question when you first bring your stem plants home do you prune them right away before you plant them or is this too stressful for them?

New plants should get a week or two to recover and establish a root system before any pruning.

do you prune java ferns and moss or does this apply to stem plants only?

Mosses can be trimmed back very easily. All that is required is to leave a small portion of viable plant behind. They'll regenerate with their usual somewhat slow growth pattern.

Java ferns and most other long-leaf plants don't like to be trimmed mid-leaf. The best way to thin out a fern is to divide the rhizome.

Well, I just came across this thread, and I'm not sure it's a sticky but it should be.
