- - Microsword Trimming
|SinCrisis ||01-17-2011 09:56 AM |
Does anyone have experience with microsword carpets? I am trying to figure out how to trim mine, but is it the same as mowing the lawn? Do i just cut them all to the desired height and have them grow back? I feel like that could kill the plant. Im trying to get the plant to grow long in the back and short in the front so i need to keep the front trimmed. Any helps/tips/experiences would be much appreciated.

how tall is the microsword? i have a microsword lawn and ts only a max of .5 inch. probably the lowest lawn plant ive ever owned.

Many of mine are >1in. .5in would be amazing if i could get the front to grow like that, but alas, its roughly 1in all around with some taller, and some shorter.

whats your substrate or lighting'? my substrate is flourite sand with 30 watts in a 10 gallon. Most of the microsword is actually smaller the .5 inch. i think the closest measurement would be .3 or .4 of an inch.

im using a ~.5" soil/flourite blend with pea sized gravel on the bottom and then super fine 1mm black gravel ~1" on top of that. Light is 9 1w White LEDs. My longest leaves are ~3" and my shortest one i can see is 1". According to the sources i could find, it seems that Micro Sword can grow up to 6".

how many gallons? only thing i can think of is increase lighting

1gallon. well what i want to know is if i can just cut it, like trim it to the desired length. I dont want to change my lights and whatnot, i jsut want to know if trimming it with scizssors across the top will kill the plant or its like grass where it will just grow back slowly...
