I have some wandering jew that I'm trying to make fill in the bottom half of my background, so naturally I want them to be nice and full as opposed to leggy. Is the best way to achieve this just trimming them back at the maximum height I want them?

I've been told that increasing the intensity of the lighting will work, but I haven't put it to the test. I have the same problem as you though, mine comes in leggier than I want.

I fixed this problem by just replanting my clippings in-between the ones there. It looks like a mini forest of wandering Jew. I tried intense lights. They just grew taller and browned as they got closer to the light.

im surprised yours is so leggy, i've never seen leggy wandering jew. It has always been a dense jungle, but if you want it to become "fuller," it needs to be brighter...

Brighter light will reduce the stem distance between leaves to some extent but even in fairly bright light it is still going to be somewhat leggy.
