Hair Grass and Lilaepsis

<br>

I'm trying to grow some hair grass and lilaeopsis...in order to get a good ground covergae is it better to seperate the clumps into smaller pieces or plant them in bunches (as sold by the store). Would appreciate some advise from the veterans..thanks in advance

I doubt it matters much how you plant it, individual plantlets is very fiddly though and hard to keep from floating to the surface. My practice is to break each clump into several smaller ones and plant these. Find you need a fairly fine substrate (2-3mm) and lots of light. Good Luck

<br>

it cannot absorb nutrients though its 'leaves' or shoots.. it has to absorb them through it's roots because in nature it does not spend all year round under water but is mostly seen grown 'emmersed'

<br>

when you get it, separate it in to many little clumps of maybe 6 or 7 shoots and plant with tweezers.. one clump should take about an hour to do, but you will get the most growth when the hair grass starts putting out runners

lilaeopsis is difficult to grow and I wouldnt recommend it as a floor plants, similar to hair grass but grows slower.
