Get's pretty big as you can see!

I'm in the process of removing it from my tank. The leaves I've taken out are 2-3 metres long. I was trimming it like grass but I didn't like the look of the cut ends, so I'm taking it all out now. Not recommended, unless you have a super huge tank!

Mine do that too. You are correct the just cut the tops off like grass. However, you could always trim the ends to be pointy as the growing ends are. Does that make sense? Soem of those leaves will continue to grow even though they were cut.
