If I remember right new stalks grow from the stem and and can cut them and plant them when they are bigger.

I believe ur right, I read somewhere when the top of the plant reaches the surface of the water it will begin to grow laterally then roots may start growing from the plant nodes??? I came home today and whadayaknow look what I noticed...



(Note: this is from the "Planted Group")

xD your bacopa is still very much alive :D

when your bacopa grows well, you can take a long stem and chop it up into a couple of different stems. it will then grow a new plant for each piece :D

Yes but if they have the same genetic code they will have the same weaknesses.

XD it's like a worm, if you cut it up it will grow another one. many plants can be propagated this way. so genetically they are the same. some plants only propagate this way
