GLA regulators are over priced. You can get a nice dual stage built by someone on the forums here for the same price. The warranty is nice, but you're paying for it.

Often with stem plants after they are cut they will grow two new stems from the cut. This can be unattractive because the new stems will grow at obtuse angles from the old stem.
