Utricularia Graminifolia is one of the most beautiful foreground plants for your planted aquarium. Due to its small size, fluffy-looking, and grass-like lawn appearance, Utricularia Graminifolia become the most popular carpet aquarium plant that is used in many aquascape designs, especially nano tanks.

Utricularia Graminifolia does best in rich nutrient soil substrate with plenty of lighting. Because Utricularia Graminifolia has a tiny roots system, it's best to use stainless steel T-pins to anchor the plant to the substrate. After UG is adapted to the environment, the root system will be developed and grow very deep into the substrate.

The dry start method (DSM) is the best and fastest way to grow Utricularia Graminifolia if you want to have a fully grown UG in a short time. Since growth emerged, the Utricularia Graminifolia can access an unlimited amount of natural CO2 which benefits the growth rates.

It's safe to grow Utricularia Graminifolia in your fish tank even though it is a carnivorous plant that has a tiny trap to lure and looking for natural food. Utricularia Graminifolia has the smallest size traps that are large enough for microscopic organisms but anything else including baby fish or shrimp won't fit inside the traps.

  • Sold as a small loose bare-root portion
  • Approx. 2" x 2" in size
