Dwarf Hairgrass

Current Promotion

Eleocharis Pusilla is also known as Dwarf Hairgrass in the planted aquarium community. It is a grass-like, easy carpet foreground plant for fish tanks and aquariums. When growing above water, Eleocharis Pusilla has a very small head or spike of flowers only a few millimeters long. It can easily propagate through runners and create a nature-style aquascape.

Eleocharis Pusilla is sold as Eleocharis Parvula in the trade for quite some time. Almost all Eleocharis Parvula being sold in the market is actually Eleocharis Pusilla because Eleocharis Parvula is actually a brackish water species and not suitable for freshwater. 

Eleocharis Pusilla can be compared with the popular Eleocharis Acicularis and Eleocharis Acicularis 'Mini'.

    There are no words I can say

    Seriously I'm pretty sure my comment would get flagged out of how many f-bombs of wonderfulness I can give to this place they are absolutely the lumping greatest people that ever existed. My plans came in perfectly and I will include pictures later on unfortunately I am driving right now but this popped up and I just had to leave a review of how lumping great my experience was.

    Everything was packaged perfectly it came even a day sooner than they said it would and for once I found a aquatic plants supplier that does what they say they will do God I love this lumping place
