Hairgrass (Eleocharis acicularis) - Potted
Hairgrass is an attractive aquatic carpeting plant that always looks excellent in the foreground of aquariums. As you can probably guess from the name, it is a tall grass that grows upwards in tufts from the aquarium floor. This plant is perfect for aquariums that house fish, snails, and dwarf shrimp, as it provides biofilm, hiding places, and security for all aquarium inhabitants.
Hairgrass grows extremely fast under the right water conditions and is capable of quickly covering the floor of your aquarium. It grows much taller than other carpeting plants, making it excellent for providing cover for any and all critters that might dwell in your tank. It may require trimming back due to its speed of growth, especially in set-ups with high-intensity lighting.
This plant ships as a potted mat that is about 1 to 3 inches wide, and the grass length is 3 to 4 inches tall. All of our plants are bright and healthy because they are kept in a water in a plant-dedicated tank rather than plastic packaging, which means your plant will arrive in top condition.
Ideal water parameters include a temperature range of 70° to 83° F with a pH level range of 6.0 to 8.0. If you want your hairgrass to grow quickly, water with high amounts of nutrients is vital.
