I have a couple plants in my tank that arrived in their emersed forms and hopefully will change into their submerged form.

My questions is whether or not I need to do anything to make sure this happens. When I inquired about dwarf clover, I was told that every so often it will send out shoots looking for the surface, and when it doesn't then it begins to change into its submerged form.

My concern is with the Alternanthera reineckii that's in my tank. The very top of the plants break the surface of the tank. Should / do I need to keep the plant trimmed to below the water level to make sure it converts into its submerged form?

Like any other stem plant, trim the top and replant it. It actually grows better emersed for me than it does in my hi tech tanks!
