The Dwarf Needlewort, also known as Eleocharis parvula, better: pusilla, is a great grass-like ground cover with which you can green your aquarium in no time. The plant mat is ready to use right out of the box- just place it where you want it in the aquarium and mound the mat a bit with gravel at the edges. From there, the groundcover will just keep growing, so you can soon enjoy a fresh green lawn.
With its grass-like stalks that grow to just 10 centimeters tall, the Dwarf Needlewort is great as a groundcover for small aquariums. Especially shrimps like to retreat here, because the stalks form a dense jungle. Juveniles can molt and grow in peace and also like to eat the biofilm off the leaves.
With a preference for temperatures between 20-27 °C, it can also be kept down to 12 °C and needs a fertilizer now and then to supply it with nitrate, potassium and phosphate . Also some Iron and CO2as well as a rather medium to high lighting support its growth. By pruning and dividing the plants, uncontrolled reproduction can be prevented. With a narrow and pointed tweezers offshoots can be replanted.
You can choose from the following sizes:
- 4x13 cm
- 20x15 cm
- 40x60 cm
Our recommendation: For a magnificent plant growth we recommend the use of the NatureHolic fertilizer series and for new setups the Premium Nutrient Substrate NatureHolic GroundBooster.
