Don't let it grow so tall that the bottoms start dying off.

From what I read and heard others talk is that you don't want to let it get that tall and thick cause you will get alot of dead underneath

I let it grow on purpose thinking that after I trimmed it wouldn't grow back..
But that is not true. This plant is like the phoenix.. it grows from the "ashes".. It's a small really hard plant.

You can get an angled scissor to mow those down

If you want to get rid of it, just ripped it out of the substrate.

It grows super fast.. It covers everything. It takes the life out of you trimming and cleaning the little pieces afterwards.
It's a really nice plant but it's a high demanding maintenance plant too.
Another one to be careful with is Rotala R. and I could say every "runner" plant...

..Just saying..

It's just that "everyone" talks good things about that plant. It's really popular and very nice plant. But it is a very fast growing and high maintenance plant. Cleaning all the little pieces and leaves is not easy..
Put it in a Nano Tank, hi tech and you would regret it months later.

Well that's not necessarily a scam but I see your point, but just like any aquarium that has the proper care and perfect conditions, it can get invasive im sure. I just see that you kind of underestimated this plant lol
