IMPORTANT: Tissue culture aquarium plants are grown in laboratory settings that specialize in aquatic plant propagation. Tissue culture plants contain young specimen that are grown in emersed forms. With this in mind, please understand how to properly transition and acclimate plant(s) into desired form(s). When done correctly, plant melt is minimal. We cannot issue refunds for tissue culture plants that arrive healthy and die out of our care.

LIVE PLANTS ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO STRESS AND DAMAGE FROM TRANSIT - This may appear in the form of minimal melt, leaf loss, cosmetic damage, etc. Refunds or replacements will not be issued for plants with viable root systems.

Remove tissue culture gel and clean gently before planting in the aquarium.

Eleocharis Acicularis is a common variation of hairgrass in the planted aquarium hobby. This particular species is quite hardy and exhibits adaptability to many aquarium conditions and water parameters. Given its growth pattern, Eleocharis Acicularis can be commonly seen in the foreground of a planted tank. When given optimal conditions, this hairgrass plant is a prolific grower and will readily send runners throughout the aquarium substrate, eventually producing a carpet. While Eleocharis Acicularis is adaptable, we still recommend giving this aquatic plant sufficient lighting to ensure proper growth.

Medium lighting along with CO2 injection, nutrient-dense aquarium soil, aquatic plant fertilizer and clean water will contribute to healthy growth and beautiful color. When planting hair grass, it should be assumed that normal pruning will be required to keep the carpet maintained!
