How To Plant Aquarium Grass

Like most things, it’s easy to learn how to plant aquarium grass when you follow the steps. In this article I’ll describe how to do it.

Aquarium grass is better known as Lilaeopsis Novea-Zeelandiae and is a relatively straight forward plant to deal with. It grows easily making it suitable for beginners and up. The great thing about it is that it looks just like the grass you would find in your garden and the reason why it’s such a popular plant for the aquarium.

When your plant arrives, remove it from the pot. Then under running water remove the rock wool – which will come off very easily. Once you have done this, take some scissors and cut the plant into 6 or 8 pieces. Any excess roots can be trimmed to 1cm or so.

Take a pair of tweesers and hold the plant firmly at the base of the plant, insert into the substrate and wiggle the plant a little, so the substrate settles around the root. Then gently remove the tweesers and the substrate will stay where it is. Plant the remaining pieces of plant within 3cm of the next so it gives the plant a chance to spread easily.

That’s it! You can see how easy it is to plant aquarium plants and how a few pots will go a long way
