This is a beautiful tall hairgrass that is often used in Mr. Amano's Nature Aquariums. It is often used as a background in Iwagumi layouts (Japanese style stone arrangements) The fresh green color and soft hair like leaves contrast well and softens the look of rock scapes. This was a rather difficult to find plant in the aquarium trade and we have finally made it easily obtainable in tissue culture form.

Tissue culture plants are grown in-vitro (literally: in the glass) in a nutrient-rich synthetic growing medium, either liquid or gel, without the presence of any other lifeforms. This guarantees a pest and disease-free specimen, while also providing accuracy throughout the trade.
Tissue culture plants should be removed from the cup as soon as possible. All plants grow on some sort of synthetic growing medium, ranging anywhere from liquid to jelly to firm gel. This should be removed and rinsed off. Gently massage the roots between your fingers until the gel dissolves away. Most plants can be broken up into smaller pieces and spread out in your aquarium. Smaller pieces are easier to plant.
