If you get too close to the second, then it still has a chance to sprout from the 1st. If you trim all the way to the first, them you run a higher risk of it just plain melting. And once your second internode shoots creep and root on their own you can trim a little bit lower if you're really picky about how low and uniform you wish for it to look.
awesome! thanks for the clarification! im always so unsure about trimming carpeting plants
