Eleocharis acicularis on grid 9 x 11 cm.

Eleocharis acicularis is very common and thrives in almost all conditions in an aquarium. An open space without shading from other plants is still preferable.

To plant it in the aquarium, press the grid softly into the bottom layer till it is just covered. Roots will start colonizing the surroundings, creating a beautiful carpet of 6-15 cm height. If the carpet grows too tall, you may carefully cut it back to the preferred height.
