You best bet is to cut off as much of the top portion as you want and replant them. If you would like to increase the number of stems you have then leave the bottom portions rooted and plant the tops around the bottoms, the bottom will continue to grow andprobably even send out a few side shoots. This will double or triple the number of stems you have of this species. If you are happy with how much you currently have, then pull up the stems, trim to the desired length, replant and discard the bottom sections (in a safe place where they will dry out and not become introduced into the natural waterways;) )This technique works for most species of stemplants. Check out the Plant Finder to learn even more about individual species.
