Eleocharis montevidensis, commonly known as the hairgrass or giant hairgrass, is a popular aquatic plant in the aquarium hobby. It is native to South America and is known for its long, thin, and grass-like leaves.
Eleocharis montevidensis is typically used in freshwater aquariums and aquascapes to create a natural and lush appearance. It can grow both submerged and partially emerged, making it versatile for different setups. The plant’s bright green color and slender leaves create a visually appealing contrast in aquariums.
In terms of care, hairgrass prefers moderate to high lighting conditions and a nutrient-rich substrate. CO2 supplementation can promote faster growth, but it is not always necessary. Regular trimming is recommended to maintain a neat appearance and to encourage compact growth.
This species is relatively hardy and can tolerate a wide range of water parameters. However, it thrives in slightly acidic to neutral water with temperatures between 68-82°F (20-28°C). It benefits from regular fertilization to support healthy growth.
Hairgrass spreads through runners or stolons, forming dense mats over time. It can be propagated by dividing these runners and replanting them. This plant serves as a valuable addition to aquascapes, providing hiding places for small fish and fry while contributing to the overall aesthetic appeal of the aquarium.
