Lilaeopsis Brasiliensis from South America can grow very compact, but a carpet or lawn effect' (4-7 cm tall) is only achieved at high light intensity. When planting in the aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed a few centimetres apart to help the plants grow together more quickly. Place in an open position without shading from other plants to ensure good light. Lilaeopsis brasiliensis tolerates low salt concentrations and, as such, can be used in brackish aquariums.
This is a potted plant that is shipped in a 5cm pot. Most potted plants can be divided into several portions or individual plants to be planted separately.

Nice plant, but grows slow. Will have to buy more.
