Cyperus Helferi

Current Promotion
Cyperus species are widespread all over the tropics, but only a few of them are good underwater plants. Cyperus Helferi from Thailand is the first Cyperus species used in aquariums. It requires a relatively large amount of light, and CO2 addition and a rich nutrient substrate are recommended to promote growth. In aquariums with good water flow the plant sways beautifully in the current.

      Cyperus Helferi

      Great bunch of plants. Got the 10pk, some of the base/roots of the plants had broken off. Guess from where it used to be buried in substrate, and being out of water for the shipping time. To be expected though shipping down to Texas can be tough. All in all happy with em. They are streaming from where they have been trimmed so looks like they at making a nice transition into my tank.

      Fresh cut no doubt

      Very fresh cut green and healthy looks good. Can't wait till it grows out. 1st time ordering from the site ordered and you disappoint! My go to if I'm in need of live plants!!

      Perfect addition to my tank

      These arrived quickly and in great shape! There are 5-6 stalks in each “plant” and their weighted, which is a real perk depending on what type of fish you keep. I got by2 get 1 free, all in all I ended up with 6. I was able to split the grasses up and add them to 2 of my tank.


      Very healthy plants and I got them quicker than I expected!

      Love them!

      I got 2 of these and received one free and they were all in great shape and have started to spread already!


      Since I am a beginner Betta fish owner no sure how to review live plants...I did get them planted in my tank the day of arrival. Not sure they are doing ok...a few of the tips of the plants are turning a little brown, is that ok? The plants themselves arrived in great shape and am satisfied with my purchase...just hope I don't kill them!!!
