I'm not sure if CL is still selling his belem hairgrass, but he did have the best price on belem that I've seen anywhere. Check out the S&S forum or go pm him.

Dhg normally grows up, belem starts to bend towards the ground making a more compact look

Dwarf Hair Grass is actually "Eleocharis Belem"

It is also known as Japanese Hair Grass or Dwarf Hair Grass Belem.

I forgot but I think DHG Belem stays less than 3 inches tall and curves down.
