Something strange with dwarf hairgrass

I have some existing hairgrass and have never seen this before. I bought a new pack to help fill out the front of my new setup, and I am seeing a strange white substance coming down from the tips of most of the plants. Picture is attached. Is this algae?

Looks like new plants had seed pods on ends and are now sprouting roots.

Thanks! I'm seeing some nice root development now so I'm going to lay off the flourish and let everything settle in

Eleocharis vivipara makes plantlets at the tips of its leaves like that. It's sold as giant or umbrella hairgrass. Is that it?
