The plant is growing to tall for my aquarium,blocking out the light.Can you trim back a jungle vallisneria? I read that if u do the leaves dont grow back. Has anyone had any experince with them?

Thanks Steve

If you trim them in height(like cutting grass) the leaves will not grow any taller...they also develope a brown edge where you cut them. The leaves will however continue to live and the plant will make new leaves and sprout runners. Most people just trim vals off at their water line...you wont see the brown line from normal tank viewing and they wont shade your other plants.
