The dwarf spike rush, Eleocharis pusilla, is native to Australia and New Zealand and inhabits wetlands with different water levels. In contrast to Eleocharis acicularis, the growth height is significantly shorter, usually only a few centimetres high. Another distinguishing feature are the light green, slightly curved stems of the dwarf spikerush. This grass grows best in cooler water, it cannot tolerate permanently high temperatures over 25° C. This delicate beauty is extremely well suited to stone layouts in the Iwagumi style, for the creation of a fresh "summer meadow". Like Echidonorus acicularis, the dwarf spikerush can also be cut well back, which makes the plant even denser and more compact
The algae and snail-free Dennerle In-Vitro laboratory plants can be kept in the box for weeks before planting. Please never open the box before use as the sterile environment can get contaminated and the quality of the product can quickly deteriorate. Rinse off the jelly and cut back the root-ends before planting. The plant can be separated into smaller bunches before use.
