hi everyone
in my 200l aquarium i receently planted 2 bacopa australis. the truth is i thought i needed more but believed they would spread after a few weeks.
three weeks later they have grown allright but only upwards. can i spread this plant with cuttings and if not how ?

I know you can pinch off a top portion of the plant and replant that,, it will grow right away. I have got the same bacopa.

I too would love to learn how to get the single stem plants to be more 'bushy' Is there another way to get it to sprout 2 shoots other than pinching off the top? Could I break the stem but leave it connected to the stem, would the plant sprout 2 new stems at the break?

i can't say i know... i read that they'll become bushier under good light but i can't know for sure. i also noticed manu side shoots but i'm not sure if they are new ones or old ones, because they grow so fast
