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.
