  1. Default Trimming Stargrass, Help Required!


    0 Not allowed!
    Evening all,

    My first post, so I will first say hello to all!

    I have had my tank up and running for a few months. All is well bar my Stargrass. It is getting a bit out of control.

    Could anyone please give me some advice as how to curtail it. I would rather it is a bush at a lower level.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Sorry about the somewhat blurry phone picture, but you get the idea. Strargrass is taking over!

    cut the stems slightly below the height that you want and strip the cut stems of their lower leaves. stick the stems back in the
    substrate wherever you want(although if you want a bushy look, plant them close to the existing plants). repeat whenever necessary.

    Cut it low... & I mean VERY low, It will divide and backbud. [When I am trying to bush out a plant like this I cut it down until there are literally only three sets of leaves on it.]

    Let the new top shoots grow out again and repeat this procedure on each set of new growth until you have a nice low bushy plant.

    Under good lighting & with proper nutrition you will have a low bushy plant fairly quickly.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
