drawf hairgrass and flourite

I've read a some stuff on plant geeks before sayign it will not spread out in flourite...
true? I have some in my 10 gal with a bag of flourite, DIY co2, ac mini, and some java mossed driftwood... I'm wounding if it will spread or if i'll have to hack the idea.. It seems to have a few little runners(only been in there a week) I cut it all down to 1 inch to encourage spreading too..

I find that placing some coarse silica sand on top of the Flourite helps the runners take root. Flourite is a little on the overly coarse side. Coarse sand does not compact or cause problems.

Flourite is coarse, but Hairgrass will grow in it. I had some hairgrass growing in Flourite a long time ago, and it did OK.
