Originating from South America the aquarium plant Lilaeopsis brasiliensis is a beautiful foreground plant. Found in the wild along riverbanks and marshes at altitudes of over 1,000m!  Know as the 'false tennellus' due to its grassy looks, this plant grows slowly but with regular pruning, this plant will grow into compact grass like carpeting.

As always, arrived in fantastic condition . I just don't think my water parameters suit this plant. I've bought it previously from various sources and despite injected co2, ferts, adequate lighting, I have never successfully grown it despite all other plants growing well. I wonder if my water is too hard. kH 12, gH 18.

As always, plant arrived in top quality and delivered promptly. Appears to be doing well after one week in the tank

How tall does it grow?


Depends on your conditions. But stays low so under 10cm in general.

What light requirements are needed?


medium to low light is fine for it

Will this plant grow/ carpet well in a well lit but no CO2 tank? Water height only ~30cm with a 18W lamp right above.


it will grow ok. Add liquid carbon to help it along.
