    Great plants!

    Since I can't seem to grow vallisneria, I decided to give Giant Hairgrass a try and was not disappointed! The plants I received were bigger than I expected, super healthy, and didn't take long to settle in. I run medium light and no C02. I've had these just over a month and they are about 20 inches tall and have put out several runners. This will be my go-to background plant for taller tanks. Thank you!

    full and lush

    The first hairgrass was sooo tall it looked folded to get in the box so it suffered an ill fate. The second, although shorter(not much) was nice and lush.
