I did read somewhere that if you turn off the lights it should straighten out, so I've did just that yesterday and they perked up. I've left the lights off this morning in hopes that they will continue to straighten out.
Are you presenting this as a problem? Or, curiosity? Some plants stop growing vertically when there is optimum lighting. If you don't like the look then trim these tips and anchor them horizontally across the substrate the new growth will grow vertically until it reaches optimum light again.
Thanks for the idea on trimming them and placing horizontal. I guess I was more curious about this happening, since I swapped out the lights to the 24/7 and this started happening.
Oh wow that's quite interesting. I can understand if the plant was blown by water current, then there would be many off-shoots since the stem is horizontal. But I don't think your plant is being blow by current.
Roger that! I think I will be trimming them and laying them flat like HD Benson suggested. The water flow shouldn't impact them this drastically since the outflow is directly above and it shoots to the other side of the tank.
Mines doing something like that to. Alot of bending/spiraling
When I first bought the plant it started doing this since it was longer, but after trimming I've had no issues.
