General information

Eleocharis vivipara is a species of flowering plant in the sedge family known as well as umbrella hairgrass or sprouting spikerush. It takes the form of a clump of thin stems. A spike of flowers appears at the tip of the stem. It does not propagate by runners like Eleocharis parvula or Eleocharis acicularis. Instead, propagation is done by formation of plantlets on the surface of the leaves, in a way similar to propagation of the ferns. Leaf of this plant rarely grows by more than 10 cm without formation of a plantlet. In order to keep smooth appearance and decorative effect of the leaves, they have to be combed once in awhile. Eleocharis vivipara is an undemanding plant. It can grow in aquariums without supply of CO2 and fertilizers. But after a while it may turn yellow if no iron fertilizer is added to the aquarium. It does not like environment with ph above 7.
