First Planted tank please help

I just added my first plants to my tank. Three anacharis. one is already too tall and needs clipped and I do not know how to do this. I would like to use the clippings to grow another plant since i want a densely planted aquarium. I took a few stems that fell off and put them in a 1/2 gallon bowl in the sun to send roots.

How long does this process take? and did i do everything ok?

also what are the needs of anacharis should i buy anything for them or anything?

Trim the tops and stick them in the substrate. Around here if I put them in a bowl in the sun I'd have soup in an hour..

They just need a little light, nutrients(fish) and co2(fish). Are you using Florescent lights?
