Dwarf Hair Grass
Common Name: Dwarf Hairgrass, Eleocharis Parvula
Dwarf Hairgrass is a popular and easy to use foreground plant that can produce a grass like lawn of carpet. This plant is really like an aquatic grass, with thin stalks growing from roots that spread horizontally by sending our runners.
High lighting and Co2 injection is not always necessary to grow dwarf hairgrass but it will definitely increase the growth speed and thickness of the foreground. This plant can grow submerged or emersed in dry start aquariums and Wabi Kusa. Simply separate larger mats into small portions and plant each an inch or so apart half way into the substrate. After several weeks, the plant will send our runners all around and a lush foreground of grass can be created.
