Default What is the best way to plant Hemianthus micranthemoides ?

I appreciate the more compact uniform growth distance the stems in this pic have for each other. How can I encourage this type of shape ? I'm starting smaller, but its still a very annoying amount of stems to individually plant. If I'm going to make the effort I want to do it the best way.

1) Should I just leave them in a bunch ?

2) Would you empty the tank for planting individuals ?

3) I've heard of people laying stems horizontally. I tried this with rotala and so far its not very uniform or predictable. The side shoots are random in distance, but maybe I'm doing something wrong ? Is this the more preferable method ?
