My experience with this subject is so long ago I do not care to calculate it, but I remember it not working out so well. The cut leaf browns on the end a bit, so enough to always remind you what you did, much like outdoor lawn grass. If you look closely, mowed blades are simply not as attractive as fresh ones. The real problem is that aquarium plants get much closer scrutiny than an outdoor lawn.
As for promoting new growth, you already know you do not need to do that. Best is to plant them where their natural height works for you. That is a nice looking grouping you have, just put them along the back or mid ground and put something shorter in the foreground.
