I have a 29 gallon setup with a large bunch of hornwort. The hornwort is so tall it is twisting around the top of my tank. How do you cut a plant and replant it.

Just cut it off leaving say 3 inches sticking out of the substrate, then cut the top piece off, say 6 inches worth and plant that in the substrate too. You can even cut the remainder into sections and plant them too as they should sprout shoots which you can then nip off and replant to make a thicket. Very Happy
Of course if you have a thick enough bunch already just carefully uproot it, cut the tops off (about 4 inches worth) and replant the tops. The long left over bits - just throw them away.
I often use those little lead strips you get when you buy plants to weigh the tops down until they root.
