Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini', also known as Eleocharis sp. 'Mini', Dwarf Hairgrass 'Mini', Eleocharis sp. Belem, or Japanese Hairgrass, is a popular aquatic plant prized for its compact and short growth. This plant is ideal for creating lush, dense carpets in aquascapes, making it a favorite among aquarists.

Key Features:

  • Compact Growth: Stays short, growing approximately 3-5 cm in height, making it the shortest growing hairgrass available.
  • Leaf Shape: Leaves may curl downward when grown in very high light, CO2, and nutrient-rich environments, adding a unique texture to the aquarium.

Optimal Conditions:

  • Lighting: Thrives in very high light conditions, which enhances its compact growth and leaf curling.
  • CO2 and Nutrients: Benefits from CO2 supplementation and a nutrient-rich substrate to maintain its vibrant, dense carpet.


  • Runners: Easily propagates via runners, quickly spreading to form a dense, lush lawn.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate to fast growth rate, allowing for quick establishment of a carpeted foreground.

Aquarium Benefits:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Creates a beautiful, dense carpet that enhances the natural look of any aquascape design.
  • Versatile Use: Ideal for foreground planting, providing a lush and vibrant base for aquascaping.

Comparison with Eleocharis pusilla (Parvula):

  • Shorter Growth: Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini' is even smaller than the popular foreground plant Eleocharis pusilla (Parvula), making it perfect for creating intricate and detailed aquascapes.


Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini' is the ideal choice for aquarists looking to add a compact and dense carpet to their freshwater aquariums. Its ability to stay short, propagate easily through runners, and thrive in high light and nutrient-rich environments makes it a standout plant for creating lush, vibrant aquascapes. Enhance your aquarium with the elegant and natural beauty of Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini' and enjoy a thriving, verdant underwater landscape.

          Beautiful Plants

          They arrived healthy and in great condition, and a beautiful shade of green that is perfect for my tank.

          Exceeded Expectations

          Grass arrived fully grown. I set my expectations low and thought I would receive small sprouts. I was pleasantly surprised by the maturity of the grass when it arrived.

          Cute Patches of Dwarf Hairgrass

          Included with other plants I ordered was this tissue culture. Very vibrant green on color and bunched well! Just gently rinsed off gel and they were ready to be added to my tank! If you're a first timer at planting them, like myself, be careful as the bunches can fall apart (100% user error there). No "melting" or dying off and I've had then for almost a week! HIGHLY recommended, but if you can't wait for the hairgrass to carpet I would order 2 to 3 of these tissue cultures.


          The portion was smaller than i expected but it was nice and green and well packaged. Would order again though.

          Very happy

          I was very pleased with my order. Got 2 pks of the tissue culture to do my 5 gallon and had just enough. Mine came in a baggy with gel. Every blade was healthy and the roots were in great shape. Sperated well. 2 days in New tank and they seem to be doing well. Along with my other plants I ordered. Everything pest free and healthy
