IMPORTANT: Tissue culture plants are cultivated in sterile lab settings ensuring your plant is free from pests, snails and algae! These are young specimen that are grown in emersed forms. Gel should always be removed prior to planting. 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 this plant from its growing medium before planting.

Eleocharis Parvula is a staple aquarium plant in the planted tank hobby. A low-growing Eleocharis species, this form of hair grass is a perfect foreground aquatic plant that will readily form a carpet in your aquascape layout. Once established in an aquarium, Eleocharis Parvula is a prolific grower and spreads quickly via runners. Because of this, hair grass is notorious for spreading to unwanted areas in the aquarium, making routine maintenance crucial if a specific look is desired.

To plant, gently separate the plant into small portions and plant each portion an inch or so apart half way into the substrate.
