Hi guys,

It has been 7 weeks, but why my Glossostigma elatinoides keep growing upwards? I want it to stay low and become a carpet. Any suggestions? Will applying a trim help?

Thank you.

Absolutely. Your carpeting plants actually need to be trained to carpet. So trim them regularly and they'll figure out they can't grow up so they need to grow out.

Thank you guys.

How much should I trim it?
trim them everytime they go past the height you want. its gon be quite a battle but eventually theyl go sideways. high lighting makes it a lil easier so they dont grow up tryina reach for the light.
