Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V2 #107

     Don't worry, trim them. I cut about 2 - 3 feet off mine about every 
     two weeks.

Subject: Croping Valisnaria
My Valisnaria G.are growing too fast and need to have their tops cut back. 
Nothing in the literature I've seen advises against this, although I can't 
help but think this has to weaken the plant.  I've been reluctant to do 
this since they keep so many things in the tank balanced.
What do you folks advise?
