Eleocharis sp. ‘mini’ is very similar to Eleocharis parvula in appearance but it is a smaller plant which grows shorter than its predecessor. As a result this plant is very useful for creating a beautiful, lush, green carpet in your layout which has the added benefit of not requiring as much maintenance as the standard Eleocharis parvula since it does not grow as tall so trimming is reduced.
This plant is very striking when used in nano aquariums because its smaller size lends itself well to achieving a greater sense of scale, as well as making maintenance easier in smaller aquariums.
