About Dwarf Hairgrass

Dwarf Hairgrass is found worldwide, from the Americas to Southeast Asia. They have even been found growing near the north and south poles.

This broad distribution means that they can handle a very wide temperature range (starting as low as 55°F). Dwarf Hairgrass grows in thick mats along with the bottom levels of the tank and provides shelter for any bottom dwellers in your tank. Dwarf Hairgrass also makes a great spawning carpet for nursery tanks. Dwarf Hairgass can grow submerged or partially submerged and even be used in aquariums. If you are looking to grow a thick and dense carpet at the bottom of your tank then Dwarf Haigrass is the best plant to choose.
