Dwarf Hair Grass
Common Name: Dwarf Hair Grass, Eleocharis Parvulus Mini
Dwarf Hair Grass is an extremely popular and easy to keep foreground aquarium plant that produces a grass-like lawn when provided with optimal conditions. Known for being an aquatic grass, Dwarf Hair Grass features thin, bright green blades that spread horizontally by sending out runners.
High-lighting and Co2 injection are not mandatory to grow dwarf hair grass but implementing this in a planted tank help to promote and increase the growth rate and density of the aquarium plant. Dwarf Hair Grass is a versatile aquarium plant that can also grow submerged or emersed in dry-start aquariums and Wabi Kusa setups. When grown in optimal conditions, Dwarf Hair Grass will grow quickly and frequent pruning will be needed to ensure the foreground stays well-trimmed and low. Dwarf Hair Grass will also willingly travel to all areas of a planted aquarium if given the opportunity!
- 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.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
