Microsword is slow compared to hairgrass. You need patience and attention to make sure it does not get smothered by other species. It takes a longer time to make a dense carpet because it only send up one leaf per plant, whereas hairgrass sends up multiple blades per plant.

But manoman, a dense carpet of microsword is absolutely georgeous, and demands respect.
