Hair Grass (Eleocharis Montevidensis)

Eleocharis Montevidensis, commonly known as Hair Grass, is found Worldwide. This plant produces thin "hair-like" leaves and forms dense carpeting clumps. The height of the plant will vary depending on the light conditions: brighter or more intense light will produce shorter plants.

Care & Maintenance

Hair Grass is easy to keep but it likes good fertilization and substrate. It should be kept clean of debris for best growth and appearance. Good water flow, housing corydoras catfish, in addition to regular "vacuuming," will help accomplish this task.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 60°-80°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground, Midground

Well-established and densely grown plants can be separated and replanted which will further encourage new growth. The plant should be planted in groups.

Hair Grass is also available as potted.

    Even with just 2 bunches, i was able to split them up even more to cover a larger area. Great quantity and quality!

    Hair Grass
    Posted by Bob Van Kampen on 21 Apr 2021

    I was looking for something that would fill in the bottom of my tank and offer cover for newly hatched fry and chose the hair grass. it turns out it was a very good decision. After just 2 weeks the hair grass is really growing at a very fast rate. Most of the bunches have grown at least inches in about 2 weeks. Couldn't be happier.

    Hair grass (eleocharis montevidensis)
    Posted by Joel Palmisano Jr on 30 Mar 2021

    These were the best bunches to date. Very healthy. Very bright green. Good root structure. Have seen new growth and expansion after just 4 days in our tank. Love them. About 8” tall. Great addition. I did not break the cluster down, but planted just as they came.

    cool addition in my tank visually; smaller fish (pencils neon tetras) really seem to like it as well :-)
