Product Description

This plant is an easy plant to grow  and does well in a wide range of water conditions.
It prefers a temperature range of 65-75  degrees Fahrenheit
6.4-7.0 pH, and slightly soft to moderate water. 
Sometimes when first introducing Eleocharis parvula to new aquariums browning or decaying stems may occur.  This  adjustment period is a natural process of this plant as it needs to  adapt to its new environment or transition from emersed growth. 

It doesn't necessarily need bright lighting to thrive, i have seen it grow very well under moderate light with no fertilisation. That said: CO2 and fertilisation, especially substrate ferts will really help.

Trimming will help stimulate the low 'lawn' effect. This plant will propegate itself with runners and make a thick lawn looking area in your tank in no time.

  1. Fairly Pleased 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2014

    I purchased two pots and unfortunately did not choose 1-2 day shipping. The Texas heat really did a number on these plants, but after two weeks it's perking up and has rooted really well. I'm expecting to see new runners soon and I couldn't be happier with how it looks.

  2. DHG 5 Star Review

    The pots were packaged very well. They arrived bright green and very healthy.

  3. Dwarf Hairgrass 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2013

    I received a pot that was about 110% full and all healthy. It's also bigger (really!) than other dwarf hairgrass I've seen. Very healthy stuff and doing very well for me.

  4. Overall, Very Pleased 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2013

    This was my first plant purchase from AlphaProBreeders. I'm always nervous when ordering plants from a new supplier for the first time, but I am quite satisfied with my purchase.

    When my DHG arrived, it was well packaged and well insulated. Once I had unpacked my order (5x DHG) I began inspecting my plants.
    I was a bit disheartened to see that the pots of DHG weren't completely full. For a rough estimate, I'd say each pot was approximately 75% full. But, the DHG itself looked healthy and green (aside from a few decaying spots in the very center of the pots which is normal in my experience).
    I separated my plants into small "plugs" trimmed them and planted my tank. From the 5 pots, I was able to separate them into well over 100 individual plugs. It has been about 2.5 weeks since planting and all but 3 or 4 of my plugs are growing strong. I am extremely happy with my decision to purchase here.

    In summary, while the pots weren't completely full, I'll take 75% full healthy pots over 100% full unhealthy pots any day.
