Eleocharis acicularis mini trimming

I am confused about eleocharis acicularis mini. Reading very different stories about trimming. Some say trim every week, some once in a while? What is a while? Some say never. Whats the best option to keep it in "top" condition and how short should it be trimmed?

And is this one the same as dhg belem?

It depends on the scale of your tank. If its in a 5 gallon tank youre going to want to trim it pretty often so it doesnt take over your hardscape. In my 75 gallon, I have only trimmed once in 6 months. The nice thing about grass is that it grows from the bottom up, so its always pushing up new growth from the bottom. It doesnt shadow itself like HC does.
