    Some info needed. I have never really frag( i say frag becuase of my salt experience) plants to move to another tank untill the other day.

    I just used small sheers and snipped off the newly developed amazon sords from my other tank and planted them in my serra tank. Is there a proper way to do this ? Or maybe someone could guideline the steps that would be great. Basically i just want some input on how to cut plants and where to cut stuff like that.

    Pboost,
    A my buddy emailed and asked for some more info: see below



    There are different types of plants that need different types of trimming, and also different stages of growth that require different pruning techniques based on what you are shooting for as far as looks.

    If you can send me a pic, or be a little more descriptive, I can help better--thanks man

    So, not sure if you know the names or if you can take pics and send them to me I will make sure he gets them. :)

    A buddy here you go, hope this helps you out.


    Amazon swords reproduce by sending out a runner that travels towards the surface, and plantlets grow off of it.
    You just trim the runner at the very bottom of the plant, and trim off the new plants. If you want to trim leaves, follow the stem to the substrate, or close to it, and trim.
    If you want to make the plant smaller, uproot the whole thing, trim off most of the roots, and trim off all large leaves, and keep 3-4 smaller leaves and replant.

    Java fern grows from a horozontal rhizome. To trim, either cut the rhizome anywhere to make the plant smaller, or just trim the leaves as close to the rhizome as possible.
    Hope that helped
