Haigrass Dwarf (Eleocharis Acicularis) | Potted

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 bareroot. We offer many other carpetting plants for sale and they can be found here.

    Hairgrass was about a third of the volume seen in the image in each pot. Otherwise it's fine.

    Quick shipping. Potted grass arrived with very little yellowing. Easy to plant and looks great in my tank.

    A little too much brown that I would want in my plant. I am very happy it made it across the ocean and was in good condition, will order again hoping for a better batch.

    I ordered two quantities of this stuff for my 5 gallon to start my carpet and it was more than enough. Can’t wait to see the growth in 6-8 weeks.
