How do you keep this species so compact like the picture below? I've never grown it before, but I'm considering putting it as a background in my high light tank. Does it naturally grow this compact or do you have to do some ridiculous amount of trimming/replanting to get it to turn into a 'globe'.

ahh, that makes sense then. how does it handle water flow? I'm probably going to plant in around a piece of driftwood that is near the intake/output of my tank.
Before it takes root it is very suseptible to coming out of the gravel (esp if you have fine gravel like flourite) but after the roots take anchor it is perfectly fixed and can handle the current. It takes awhile but the roots from b.japonica are looooong and deeep!
