Eriocaulon breviscapum is a new discovery for the aquarium hobby and is still a rarity. This fine-leaved Eriocaulon has already turned out as an excellent aquarium plant. The species is endemic to southwestern India and was found in Kerala submerged in fast-flowing rivers. There the plant develops lush tufts which are anchored by strong, long roots between rocks in the riverbed. It was imported to Germany by Dennerle, since then it is propagated in nurseries.
In its terrestrial form, Eriocaulon breviscapum has quite short leaves, it reaches its full height under water only. Its very narrow, flexible leaves resemble those of E. sp. "Japan Needle Leaf". Nutrient-rich substrate, plenty of light and sufficient CO2 supply are recommended. It is propagated by detaching of daughter rosettes which form at the base of the plant. This Eriocaulon is particularly eye-catching as solitary plant between flat-growing species.
Please be aware that the bunch/potted variation of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
