With the moss you can easily trim and replant/re-attach the clippings. Anacharis should be fairly simple as well. You can trim and replant the tops and leave the bottoms in to regrow more shoots. By Pennywort, I'm assuming you mean Hydrocotyle leucocephala, which is a runner plant. It is very hardy and you can also clip and replant it while leaving in the lower stems. Its tendency is to grow upward toward the light, but you can also train it to creep along the substrate with a little patience. Hope this helps

Send a message via Yahoo to tropicfishman
what lonewoldblue tought me was that with most plants you can clip them off right above the section of sprouted leaves, like topping them and replant what ya cut off, obviously that doesn't work with all plants, but for mine I know thats what ya can do

how you train the pennywort to grow along the substrate?
is the white looking roots that come out of everwhere from the stem etc, are they roots? do I place those on substrate to hold it down along the substrate?
