About This Product

Cyperus helferi is an excellent aquarium plant to add a grass like look in the aquarium. The long leaves of Cyperus helferi wave in the current and are very pleasing to the eye. Plant Cyperus helferi in multiple pieces to help create a full backdrop or plant near moving water in the aquarium to see it move in the current. Cyperus species have been popular in the water garden industry for many years, but Cyperus helferi is the first species to be used totally submerged in an aquarium.

    Planted a year ago, this has done very well for me. Lots of new growth, 1 plant has split into 15 or so in a year. It has gotten about 20" tall, and is a nice grassy look in the back of my aquarium. I do not have a CO2, and I only do sporadic liquid fertilizer.

    Plants came with a great root system and they were about 2 feet long. only had to trim 1-2 leaves because they were slightly brown at the tip. fast shipping wonderful plant quality will order again for sure.

    Plants arrived in great shape and were close to two feet long! Some yellowing on a few of the tips, but a quick trim had them looking great.

    Plant arrived with lush long dark green leaves, but a poor root system. I has been in the aquarium for three week and the roots have anchored it quite nicely. The leaves are showing a few signs of yellowing at the tip, but I read it takes a while to acclimate. Overall I am happy with my order and would buy from aquarium plants. com again.
