    Are there other plants that can be trimmed from the top like Ambulia sessiliflora? More specificaly, plants that you can cut the tops off and they grow with a new top and without splitting into several stems at the cut.

    Thanks in advance!

    Most stem plants, H difformis is very good for this also.

    My rotala indica grows well at the cut.

    Another idea that works very well, is to always make your cuts near the base of the plant, and plant the cut section a little deeper so that the new split growth looks like a new plant.
