The Dwarf hairgrass, also known as Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini' and Eleocharis sp. "Belem", was probably found in the area of Belém in Brazil. It stays lower than the Needle Spikerush, E. acicularis, and the plant that is traded as "Eleocharis parvula". It is one of the most popular lawn-forming plants in aquascaping. Although its culms may reach a length of about 10 cm, it is perfectly suited for an only 3-6 cm high, dense, lush, freshly green lawn. Its almost hair-thin, light green culms are typically arching and appear on many thin underground runners.
Eleocharis sp. 'Mini' is not very demanding but needs good lighting in the first place. CO2 addition and complete nutrient supply, also via the substrate, are very beneficial for its growth. For planting, the tissue culture or pot plant is split into smaller tufts that are distributed over the entire area to be covered. They are best put into the ground with tweezers. It grows together with its branched runners, eventually forming a dense lawn. Not before it has become very dense and too high, It should be trimmed to the ground. New culms will grow from the matted runners. The plant has to be cut down rather rarely.
Magnificent look and low maintenance make Eleocharis sp. 'Mini' a great choice as ground-covering plant. As it also grows well emersed, it is also interesting for paludariums and Wabi-Kusa.

Green and sturdy, although i bought way too much, as the article does not describe that you need to cut this into pieces and spread through your tank. (read more)

Nice looking grass-like plant. I hope it will grow well in my tank. It arrived in perfect condition and I think "1-2 Grow" variant is great choice for this plant. (read more)
Nice looking grass-like plant. I hope it will grow well in my tank. It arrived in perfect condition and I think "1-2 Grow" variant is great choice for this plant. Now I'm waiting to see how fast it will grow in my tank (no CO2) but after few days it looks still good. It needs more time in my case.
You get a lot in the XL pot. It's best to plant it in small clumps. It takes a while to adapt, losing some leaves. (read more)
You get a lot in the XL pot. It's best to plant it in small clumps. It takes a while to adapt, losing some leaves. However, after this it grows steadily and it doesn't need lots of light.
