Why replant glosso?

I was just reading overfloater's photo journal and noticed that he is replanting glosso every 6 weeks or so. I'm scared now becuase I am growing a big glosso carpet.

Why is it necessary to do this?

But that doesn't necessarily mean you need to do it every six weeks. I simply cut segments out of mine every couple months or three. Then, on the next trim, I cut what I didn't cut before. Its really not that bad.

Think I'll try that when it comes time, doesn't sound too bad

Just make sure you make good clean cuts. Don't cut and pull, else the edge of the mat will come up, and there is no replanting it as a mat.
