Brazilian grass Lilaeopsis brasiliensis from South America has long been on the market as Lilaeopsis novae-zelandiae and is therefore still sometimes called New Zealand grass. It has narrow green leaves that grow about 5-7 cm high and therefore fits super in the foreground of the aquarium.
Optimally, the Brazilian grass plant looks, for example, with the Mauritius grass plant together - the combination of narrow short and narrow longer blades of grass is incredibly attractive. But also alone as an "English lawn" or in combination with round-leaved foreground plants such as Hemianthus callitrichoides (Cuba Dwarf Pearlwort), the Brazilian Grass Plant looks very natural.
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis sends many runners in all directions, which quickly make the stand dense. Every now and then you have to thin it out so that the layer does not become too thick. Also, you should always cut back the runners at the edge of the Lilaeopsis group well, if you want to avoid that the plant grows in the entire aquarium.
The propagation of this Lilaeopsis is very easy. Just cut off a runner with daughter plants on it, replant, done.
The Brazilian grass plant needs only medium light. A CO2 fertilization is not absolutely necessary, but of course the plants grow faster if they are supplied with proper carbon.
Here you can find the Brazilian Grass Plant for sale as an InVitro aquarium plant. These plants are grown in the laboratory without the use of pesticides, and they are guaranteed to be free of unwelcome guests such as snails, algae and other parasites. InVitro plants may also be immediately added to the shrimp aquarium without quarantine - just be sure to rinse the nutrient substrate from the roots beforehand.
The best way to place Lilaeopsis brasiliensis in the aquarium is to divide them into pieces about 2x2 cm in size. Planted with some spacing, the gaps will close quickly thanks to the runners that the plants form.
Our recommendation: For splendid plant growth, we recommend Premium Nutrient Soil when setting up a new plant: NatureHolic GroundBooster
