I have a problem how to trim Lileopsis. I guess it should be cut just above the gravel but i'm not sure and I dont want to kill the plant. Any idea?

Congrats on the getting the stuff to grow, haven't tried in 4 years or so but I never got anywhere with it, gave up for micro tenellus... :D No idea how to trim to anything...

I keep a small 'lawn' Lilaeopsis brasiliensis in my tank. I usually just use a long bladed pair of scissors to make sure the trim looks even. I don't cut it any lower than 1"-1 1/2" above the gravel. Any lower and it can get down into the root structure - you'll see the hollow leaf tubes showing if you cut it too short. It's great fun vacuuming it out of the tank after I trim it :?
