Description: One of the most popular carpeting plants in the entire aquarium hobby, dwarf harigrass is relatively easy to grow. It often takes a while to establish itself, but once rooted it can quickly form a lush, dark green carpet. It spreads by sending runners deep into the substrate that reemerge away from the mother plant.
Difficulty: As with all aquarium plants, Co2 injection and appropriate fertilisation are recommended for optimal health and growth. This is not essential for dwarf hairgrass but is recommended to achieve faster and denser growth.
Emersed Growth: Dwarf hairgrass is very easy to grow emerged, but a high humidity is important. We have found the conversion from emerged to submersed state very straightforward.
