Planting Brazilian Pennywort
 
So I bought a couple bunches of Brazilian Pennywort from the LFS, I took the lead strip (weight) off and trimmed away any brown rotting looking vegitation from the bottom.

I bunched them up (same as I got them) but without the lead. My question, should I have bunched them up, approx 5 stems per bunch or should I have planted each stem individualy?

The plant would appreciate a little space but it doesnt matter that much. The plant will sprout roots at each node and take nutrients form the water column as well as the substrate so being too bunched together wont choke them out.

Thanks for the info.
