Difficulty : Moderate Lighting Requirements : Medium Tank Placement : Foreground Category : Aquarium Plant
L. brasiliensis is not too difficult to grow, given enough light and CO2 supplementation. This hardy species will even grow in dim lighting. However, it will form dense, beautiful foreground lawns only when supplied with bright, unobstructed light (3wpg or more). A rich substrate encourages faster, taller growth --so it may be more desirable to have a lean substrate, depending on the size and height of the aquarium. As with most all plants, this species benefits from the regular addition of nitrate, phosphate, potassium, and micronutrients through the water column.
This herbaceous plant grows along a long rhizome in a somewhat similar fashion to Hydrocotyle verticellata, except that the leaves are grass-like and grow in more densely. To create a micro sword lawn, insert small bunches of this plant in a checkerboard pattern across the substrate. In a few months, the plants will grow in and form a shaggy carpet. As this plant is very invasive, runners that grow into neighboring plant groupings will need to be regularly pruned off. These clippings can be used for propagation in other tanks if desired.
L. brasiliensis, due to its low stature, is an excellent grassy foreground alternative to the more common Eleocharis spp. (hairgrass) and Echinodorus tenellus. It can also be used to provide vertical accents in Glossotigma and Riccia lawns. Last Updated @ 1/10/2016 4:00:24 PM
