    When and how do you trim it? Does it matter, and does trimming them spur new growth?

    You should always propogate plants when they aren’t growing much at the time, and Anubias are usually always a slow growing plant.

    I personally wouldn’t trim it, only if any leaves die or turn yellow.

    Thanks! Yeah. I wasn’t sure. Those things have been actually growing pretty steadily and faster than I thought they would in my tank, it feels like, but the oldest leaves still look pretty good. They just collect diatoms. I was starting to think it was immortal or something.

    I trim any really bad leaves or ill cut a piece off when its getting too big.

    I normally trim - when leaves go bad, or die off - but also if any new misshapen growth occurs.
