Eleocharis Vivipara

Aquatic Plants
Usually ships in 1-2 business days from our fulfillment center

Eleocharis Vivipara is similar and the taller variant of its popular counterpart, Dwarf Hairgrass. While similar, Eleocharis Vivipara grows substantially taller and is on the wilder side which makes it a beautiful choice for a background plant. It's a perfect feathery background plant in wood and/or rockscapes.

High lighting and CO2 injection are not necessarily required to grow Dwarf Hair Grass, but is highly recommended if you’d like it to grow in lush and quick. The difference is highly noticeable. 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.
