Unless you have bright lighting, all stem plants will go bare at the bottom portion of the stem and only keep the upper leaves. Being tightly bunched contributes also, since each individual plant will recieve less light.

Most people mask this by putting a smaller plant, or a decoration in front of stem plants.

well, I must admit, the remains stems looks longer and a bit thicker. The last times "this" started this way and then all the plant turned brown and died. Now I'm using two Aqueon 18" Floramax (15 watts) since 5 days ago, instead than the two "Day light Full Spectrum", the Floramax is less brighter but seems it's the correct spectrum
