I read similar to but after reading many of ceg's post there is nothing more important than a clean tank, maybe I took this a bit to literally but I trimmed the dying bits of my hc and it grew like mad, maybe better to wait a bit until someone with more knowledge can answer for definite :)
Im still a newbie myself but I trim anything thats dying off, mainly to help prevent algae but also I believe that it helps the plants to use its energy for new growth instead of wasting it on dying leaves
Much appreciated I will definitely take on board your advice, I know this scape will be a lot of work maintenance wise but im determined to make this scape work :)

Which would be peoples choice between tropica 1 - 2 grow HEMIANTHUS CALLITRICHOIDES ''CUBA'' and
