Question How do we count 'stems'? (R-rated pictures)

Many of us sell/buy stem plants on TPT. What is the 'convention' for sellers and expectation of buyers when we say "5 stems'?

This question came up when I started selling plants like HM and Rotala magenta: a 'single' ~4" 'stem' could be hard to see with the naked eye.

Does the picture below show a 'single stem' or ~15 'stems'? The picture is a bit of an exaggeration, but really?
