Eleocharis Acicularis (also known as Hairgrass) is an easy carpeting plant. Given the right amount of light this plant will carpet within weeks by shooting our runners. It is also suitable for lower tech set-ups, however growth will be slower. When planting, plant in small clumps into your substrate. The blades can reach up to 15cm in length. Once dense/overgrown you can trim down to 2-3cm to encourage new growth. It also looks effective when planted between rocks or amonst other foreground plants such as Hemianthus Callitrichoides or Sagittaria.

Two portions of hairgrass bought, visually fantastic quality on arrival. Two weeks later I have runners competing with mischievous fish. A good buy at the price and these plants have come down 65p since.

I was thrilled when this dwarf hairgrass arrived in excellent condition and also surprised at how much plant you get for the money. I have a 2 foot long tank and I managed to scape the foreground with only one load of this hairgrass. Granted, it needs to fill in and bush out, to achieve a beautiful lawn. But it seems to be doing very well in my setup, with the addition of root tabs. It's a beautiful plant and the fish live swimming through it.
