It depends on the species. Certain plants like Ammania gracilis, Ludwigia sp Cuba, and Bacopa caroliniana are topped. Others like Heteranthera zosterifolia, Rotala sp Green, and Hemianthus micranthemoides should be trimmed.

I trim as often as is necessary to keep the look I want. When a design is fully grown in, I try to maintain it by pruning it every two to three days.
