An exceptional plant of unknown origin that is similar to Eriocaulon sp. "Japan Needle Leaf". However, "Feather Duster" develops even narrower, only about 1 mm wide leaves with a length of little more than 30 cm. With time, it forms dense clumps with many shoots.
According to our previous experience, Eriocaulon sp. "Feather Duster" has the same, quite low demands as "Japan Needle Leaf". The plant grows well with medium to strong lighting. It forms daughter plants on its branched rhizomes and is easily propagated by splitting.
As well as "Japan Needle Leaf", "Feather Duster" is an interesting alternative to narrow-leaved background plants such as Vallisneria nana. With its even fine foliage, it offers the possibility to enhance the perspective effect in an aquascape when it is combined with "Japan Needle Leaf". Its hair-like leaves, swaying in the water current, have a very natural appearance.
Please be aware that the bunch/potted variation of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

I ordered one plant and it arrived in good condition but it had jut small roots. After few days I don't see if its growing or not, surely it have to build root system first. (read more)
I ordered one plant and it arrived in good condition but it had jut small roots. After few days I don't see if its growing or not, surely it have to build root system first. A few leaves turns yellow at the tops but others looks good. It will take a lot of time in my tank until it becomes bigger. I hope it will not die. Anyhow I like this plant.
