I started DIY co2 injection, and replaced incadescent bulbs with screw in flourescent. Plant growth is amazing! I am also adding seachem flourish. I have some baby tears, amazon sword, and walmart bulbs. How, Where, and when exactly should i trim and replant cuttings? Are all plants trimable to replant stem, ie. swords, walmart bulb plants?
Thx for any help,
10g tank

Amazon swords will send out a shoot that will have small amazons growing from it. I replant them when they get about 6" tall or so. I don't know about the other plants, but I do know that if you trim a walmart bulb plant the cuttings ( or if you're like me and just pull the stems out) won't grow new plants.

Stem plants you can trim and replant the tops. Oftentimes leaving the bottoms in will give you bushier growth, but some stem plants are better just topping, replanting and tossing the bottoms.
