Yes trimming has much to do with it coming uprooted. I too am using AS and have a carpet of HC and have NOT had a problem YET!

But i would imagine that the lighting, nutrient dosing and tank occupants play a factor in the uprooting as well.

Is it possible that any of these could be the culprit?

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.
