I'm leaning towards dwarf hairgrass or ..what's it called.. dwarf swords? I'd really like something pretty short since the top of the substrate is just about eye level from the regular viewing point (sofa). If that makes sense?? Anything above that is looking up at an angle.
Also, does anyone have info on the stuff that is H. Micro..something. Same "H" as HC. Sorry, I'm still a newb. I could barely find any info on it online. It was listed in an older thread for low tech ground covers.
First, I need to thank eyebeatbadgers for posting those and making me look at them again! The last time, I got frustrated without reading the whole thread. So, now I found this, and I'm pretty sure it's what I'm going to use, if I can find it.
It sounds like it has lower light needs than micro swords, and is faster growing.
Dwarf sag would be my choice its kind of a "plant it and forget it" kinda plant. Plant it, and it spreads....it doesnt take long to cover a large area. Be darn sure you get the true dwarf sag though, some "dwarf sag" I have purchased got up to 18 inches tall.
