They seem to be growing upwards rather than spreading horizontally. But it is early days yet. If this continues it means your lights are not strong enough. I have a carpet myself and they need a lot of light.

keep trimming them and they will have more of a tendency to stay low and send out runner

They only been in there for almost a week I'm afraid to trim them yet because they might not be rooted

I think you can safely trim the taller strands and if you want you can replant them by using a screen mesh to hold them which you can bury with easy and start growing more baby tears =)

Watts per a gallon as a useful measurement is dead.
20g long gets stronger light than a 20g high using the same light on each due to height difference of tanks.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Looks like HG, or regular baby tears. If you want a carpet, try anchoring the stems down horizontally somehow.

Yea, you have regular baby tears, not HC. It will grow into a nice stem bush. I suggest pulling it and putting it in the midground or background of your tank. It's a nice plant, just not suitable for a foreground.

I disagree. Well I agree it's not HC but you can make a very nice carpet with HG. It does take time, a lot of trimming, and a good amount of light though.
