Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini' Dwarf Hair Grass Tissue Culture LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT

Eleocharis acicularis 'mini' has even lower growth than the common Eleocharis parvula and was given to Tropica by Thomas Barr from USA. Plant the mini-version in small portions to cover a large area. In short time, a dense carpet will be obtained. Needs light to perform optimally, however, it is one of the most reliable species for creating a carpet - and a minimum of maintenance since the leaves remain short (3-5 cm). Suitable for nano-aquariums.

Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini' is a medium category carpeting plant supplied in 1-2-Grow! tissue cultured cups grown in our Danish laboratories here at Tropica. The growth media is a liquid type meaning the plant has adapted to grow under water almost immediately. It sends out runners and new leaves that eventually result in a beautiful lush green lawn. It requires moderate to strong lighting and CO2 injection for best results.

Preparing 1-2-Grow! cup

1. Peel off the lid from the 1-2-Grow cup.

2. Carefully remove the entire plant from the cup.

3. Place the plant into a bowl of water and wash off the growth media.

4. Divide the pot into as many portions as necessary.

5. Plant into your soil or substrate with aquascaping tweezers.

Maintaining the plant:

Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini' is a relatively low-maintenance carpeting plant due to its fine leaf blades that gradually become more dense over time. The carpet can be left to grow for many weeks before any trimming is required providing there is sufficient light and circulation. Regular vacuuming of the carpet from excess organic waste is necessary to prevent algae and poor plant growth. In the long term, the entire carpet can be removed as one whole matt, then the healthiest plants separated and re-planted with tweezers. It grows best in aquarium soil but can be grown in fine gravel and sand if sufficient nutrients are provided by a liquid fertiliser. We recommend Tropica Premium and Specialised Nutrition.
