Description

Haigrass Dwarf (Eleocharis Acicularis) 

Eleocharis Acicularis, commonly known as Hairgrass, is a grass-like plant whose height will vary depending on the intensity of lighting. Brigher or more intense light will produce a shorter plant. The plant produces fine grassy leaves.

Care & Maintenance for Haigrass Dwarf

This is an easy to grow plant provided that its requirement are met. The plant likes good substrate, fertilization and light. Keep the plant clean of debris to make it look its best, prevent it from decaying or inhibiting its growth. Having scavenging fish like corydoras catfish helps quite a bit as these fish will disturb and/or remove the dirt as they look for food.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate - Strong
  • Temperature Range: 72-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground

Haigrass looks best when planted in small groups in the foreground areas of the aquarium. It should be allowed to spread. Provided with good conditions, the plant will spread through runners and will create an attractive "lawn" effect in the aquarium.

Hairgrass Dwarf is also available potted. We offer many other carpetting plants for sale and they can be found here.

    This hairgrass is really beautiful and high quality, they also are quite tall so they’re great accent pieces for your planted tanks! Highly recommend buying from Modern Aquarium!

    No complaints

    Arrived quickly, alive, healthy, and identical to picture. 5 stars for for quality and product being as described, despite plant diversity, it arrived almost identical to the picture which I appreciate, as it is common in this hobby to receive items different than pictured.

    I have purchased hair grass several times for my shrimp tank. They have always arrived healthy and are doing very well. I also recommend that you purchase rooting tabs. Very pleased!

    Separate them

    Posted by Neno Albert on 14 Aug 2020

    I bought 2 bunches so I could be as picky as I wanted with what I planted. I floated them and picked out what to didn't like. A bit on the yellow side when arriving, but not decaying or dying. The hair grass was pretty long already, which was nice to prune to desired height! Be warned, it's one that you want to take your time planting and ideally not in clumps. It not only looks better, but increases the coloration when separated and tweezed into substrate.

    Posted by ELR on 19 Jun 2020

    I'm really happy with this - able to separate out a ton of little clumps and cover a large area and they look great!
