One of the most popular aquarium plant by a long way the Eleocharis acicularis is a beautiful foreground plant that is the Found all over the world. this great little plant creates a carpet effect at the front of your tank.
Prefers cooler waters but still grows perfectly fine is warmer tanks. Given the right conditions this plant can grow up to 15cm in height, cut back severely and divide any dense palntings.

The service was prompt and I manage to divide this plant between 8pieces. All of them are doing fine after one week in my aquarium. Very happy with a clean and healthy plant. Will gladly buy again.

The first batch of these made me want more for my tank. The plants split really well and are doing well in my tank. The second batch had some amazing height to them. Love the look of these plants. And Aqua Essentials continue to provide a brilliant service.

I wasn't sure about buying this grass but I did anyway, I'm very glad I did! it was the easiest plant I've had to get out of its pot etc and plant. I'd recommend this to anyone, my fish love it and they all look healthier for having a few more plants in the tank.

The quality is very good but had hoped that it was a little larger so it could be split into 2.....otherwise great thank u

lovely plant best online seller, will continue to shop here

plant looks good in foreground of my tank - wish I had bought a few more to make more of an impact, but it looks as though it will spread quite well. I was concerned about planting it as previous attempts with this plant bought elsewhere resulted it lots of plantlets becoming seperated and looking messy. But so far this looks good.

I've just bought this eleocharis as well as some other plants from aqua-essentials and I have to say I'm very impressed. The quality and the amount (plant per pot) is unmatched by any other retailer far suppressing that of any of the big brands I've bought from before. The three pots of elecharis was plenty to fill my 15l iwagumi and it's already spreading after four days after planting. They arrived promptly by courier and were packaged well using recycled material along with a free company catalogue and a leaflet of great care tips for novices and experts alike!

Lovely plant, generous portions! A few bits of what looked like duckweed in it, so make sure you wash them through before putting them in, unless duckweed is something you want :)

Everything arrived promptly and in fantastic condition as usual. Took me a while to separate and plant but definitely worth the time, within a week they have needed trimming down and have already started sending out shoots. Lovely watching my fish swim in and around them :)

A good portion for the price. It doesn't look as bushy as the photo but I guess each pot varies and the amount was still enough to do what I needed to do.

easy to plant comes in good sized pots and produces runners very quickly
