Do you trim during DSM?

Newbie and thanks for all the info on the site! I am currently doing DSM for about 1.5 months (flooding after vacation) with HC and Glosso in a 25gal cube. They are growing nicely but I was wondering do people typically trim the HC and Glosso during DSM? I had a little bit of yellowing on my HC so I did and then replanted some of it. Should I do it for the tall Glosso too?

Thanks!

If your plants get too large, then definitely trim.

^what shocked said, also works for hairgrass and lilaeopsis, stimulates more root growth = more runners more quickly.. still painfully slow... have had some l. brasiliensis for almost a year, i don't wanna talk about it =|
