You can, or you can leave it for now. Stem plants grow in length and some will readily send out side shoots, like this plant has done. Any of the stems or side shoots can be cut off and will root in the gravel as new plants. The stem plants usually have to be trimmed and cut like this regularly to keep them busy and looking good, else the lower leaves may come off and not look so nice. Roots will appear all along the stems of many plant species like this, they assimilate nutrients from the water, so the roots don't have to be planted in the gravel if that was what you were wondering about.
