I bought some monte carlo at my LFS. The pots they had were grown out with all the stems reaching about 3-4 inches long! I asked the manager (who is an aquascaping enthusiast) about planting it and he said to divide it like normal and the long stems would droop across the substrate and start rooting. However, two weeks after planting I can't see any such thing happening. Most of the stems are reaching up and twisting into knots.

Can I trim each of the long stems into 2-3 stems and plant the clippings in the substrate or does each stem need to have already grown roots to survive planting?
