Originating from South America the aquarium plant Lilaeopsis is a beautiful foreground plant that is pregrown on a mat. If you were to grow this yourself, it would take 6 months or so. 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.

For maximum effect, add multiple mats together and you really will have an instant carpet and HUGE impact.

Think I had the last piece in stock which the guys bumped up with additional plants because it wasn't perfectly covered. Great condition as always, hoping this will finally give me the coverage I'm looking for. Thanks Aqua Essentials!

Excellent specimen, great idea ready made carpet which would give your tank a great look and a good starting point encouraging the plant to settle and spread. Unfortunately the clown loach like eating it too much but it was worth the try.

Such a good idea! I’ve propped a couple of these up against my filter to create a grass ‘wall’ and it looks great.

Do you remove the mesh?


No you leave it on the mesh. Plant it in the substrate and it will eventually grow like a carpet so you won't be able to see the mesh.
