Common Name: Helanthium Tenellum Broad Leaf  

Helanthium Tenellum is a carpeting grass-like plant that bears close resemblance to a mix between dwarf hair grass and micro swords.  The broad leaf variant has thicker leaves that look almost like Dwarf Sagittaria.  This plant grows by sending out lateral runners just like hairgrass and other swords and when grown under proper conditions can spread to cover the foreground of your aquarium.  For smaller nano tanks, this plant can also serve as a short background plant but adequate lighting and CO2 are recommended.


  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium.
  • Remove tissue culture gel before planting.  Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
