Eleocharis Acicularis or Hair Grass is a classic aquarium plant that has been used for years! Typically used as a foreground plant, Eleocharis Acicularis is similar to its popular counterpart, Eleocharis Parvula, but is slightly taller making it versatile with placement depending on how low you trim it. Care is also comparable and while CO2 injection isn't required, it will promote quicker growth, ultimately providing a dense carpet of grass-like coverage. Along with CO2 injection, quality aquarium lighting and a nutrient dense aquarium soil should be provided for optimal conditions. To plant, simply separate larger mats into small portions and plant each portion an inch or so apart half way into the substrate. Once established, regular trimming will be required as once it sends runners out, the plant grows quickly.

Tissue culture plants are grown in-vitro by laboratories who specialize in propagating aquatic plants. There is a huge selection of plant species that have been propagated this way. This is truly the best option for those who want absolutely zero unwanted pests, algae and pesticides. This makes them perfect for shrimp keepers and any planted tank enthusiasts alike.
NOTE: It is important to remove the tissue culture agar gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away, divide, and plant.
