So I read that it's normal, and will continue to grow. Question is my lightening is on the lower end LED (0.5 diode and I have 9 lights). I'm wondering if I should just leave the plants floating for better light intake or should it be ok planted? I've noticed the bottom of the stem looks bare compared to the top, also how long are the roots? Mine doesn't seem to have any

Float it and if the current from the filter isnt strong enough, it will send roots down to the substrate within a week or so. Be warned though, cuz it will then start going like CRAZY if you're dosing ferts. Mine grew about 6 inches within a week before i took it out.
