Plant growth

This plant is growing wonky, my uneducated guess is thereís not enough lighting. Thinking about adding a second finned light, suggestions?

It looks very ugly and I want to cut the top off and replant it but Iím also interested to see how it grows. It has roots growing all the way up the stock.

You can see a lower stem growing just fine too so itís not light or co2 issue. Nothing unusual or wrong here. Replant the tops

When I cut the top off how long should I leave the steam of the principals plant? I want to hopefully have it fill back out
