Depends upopn how it grows. I generally allow the Pennywort (my stem plant) to reach the surface, then that week during the pwc i pull it all up, cut off the bottom piece (length depends upon how long you want each piece) and stick the cut ends back in the gravel. By next week or more likely two weeks, have to repeat as it is back across the surface. This keeps fresher looking leaves all the way down (unless you can't see the lower ends, doesn't matter).

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
