Need advice on trimming

Hi all, I've question on how to trim Limnophila Aromatica and Gratiola Officinalis. Can I just cut the top & replant. Will the bottom part sprut new leaf or need to be taken off like cabomba's ?
Other plant in mind is Echinodorus Quadricostatus that grows unrully and bunching up along the glass front side of the tank. What are the suggestions with that ?

For "Gratiola" and Limnophila aromatica, I would top and replant the healthier cuttings. You can most certainly try letting the rooted portions grow out if you want --they will produce new growth.

As for the E. quadricostatus, I don't think you can prevent that unruly bunching on the glass sides. You will just have to trim off all the excess growth with scissors or try to pull it away from the tank sides with your hands.

thanks a bunch Carlos :lol:
