    Dwarf hair grass (eleocharis acicularis)

    Posted by Frans E Frazier on Mar 17th 2022

    Arrived in great shape and looked just like the picture on their website. Planted it in Fluval Stratum and it seems to be acclimating well. Their were a few very tiny round leafed other plants down around the base of the grass in one of the containers but I think I was able to pluck them out.

    This plant was green, healthy and in good shape. It could have been a little fuller, but overall, great purchase.
