How to care for Eleocharis Acicularis (Dwarf Hairgrass)

27782 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Patty LongD

I have five 'plugs' planted in my tank. I tried my best to remove the rock wool and buried each plug with crushed root tablets. I started dosing liquid fertilizer. It is planted in sand.
The grass looks unchanged since I bought it a few weeks ago. I would like to have a 'carpet' of this plant. Could you tell me how to achieve this?

Do you know if this is sufficent lighting?
Lighting on box reads Beamworks, and also includes:
Model - power led 300
Type - led fixture
Input - AC 100-240V
Out put - DC 12V 500mA
Usage - Indoor

Lastly, I hear CO2 is necessary for this plant. I don't know how to dose CO2, and it seems very expensive. Is it?

Thank you!

Since they are already planted, I probably shouldn't dig them up, but I will keep that in mind for the future!
I'm starting to see a bit of growth today. Can this plant grow in room temperature water?
