Is the sagging/drooping just because its newly planted or should i trim it away and plant the trimmings?

Should i re arrange some things?



I cant wait to see this thing in a month! I am planning on getting a cfl instead because im afraid the floaters are blocking a lot of the tiny led light...

LOOK at the size of this thing holy moly



I also have red root floaters . Hehehe pretty stoked with plant package from H4N

The stems will straighten out over time. Once they get acclimated to the tank, they will stand up toward the light more. If you do trim, you can replant the top of the plant and let it grow more.

Stem plants are a pretty good indicator of if you have enough light or not. If not, the spacing between the nodes will get longer in the new growth.

All plants doing extremely well, bacopa has broke the surface already! I think the LED was enough light but I switched it for my artist lamp/13w cfl. Wayyyy brighter and now the bacopa can grow up and the light can move with it...

All of the folks with these nicely planted betta jars without lids, are we worried that they will jump out? I have had a female jump from one tank to another?
