Common Name: Dwarf Rush, Sweet Flag
Dwarf Rush is a terrarium plant that can be grown in an aquarium for short periods of time. When kept in a submerged environment, it is important to take the plant out of the water and grow it emersed for several months to allow the plant to rejuvenate. The leaves are considered thicker and more resilient so many hobbyists keeps them with Cichlids who would otherwise tear up more delicate foliage.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
