gnome Yes, that myth should have died out along with "sharp substrates ruin cory barbels." You can grow even the most delicate of plants in Flourite - glosso, even Elatine triandra... I wouldn't even consider hairgrass to be "delicate." I got mine as Eleocharis parvula, but I'm not 100% sure, because some of the blades on this thing reached a good 5" after it took off. And yes, it was 100% Flourite (less, if you consider all the MTS's that were crawling around in it. I had to get rid of all the hairgrass because this was a 2.5-gallon tank (8" high).

Bob Hooper Naomi,
That's good to hear, I have heard many people say that flourite was to course to have the hairgrass take root in. Was this in 100% flourite? I'm just curious as to what type of hairgrass you had that success with. Was it the acicularis or the parvoulas(spelling)?
Thanks,
Hoop

gnome I sure did! It took some weeks to get started, but once that momentum kicked in, it got crazy. It was like somebody doused the tank with Rogaine!

Flourite and dwarf hairgrass?

Has anyone had any luck growing dwarf hairgrass using 100% flourite as a substrate?
Thanks,
Hoop
