Lilaeopsis brasiliensis is an Easy category plant available from Tropica in 1-2-Grow cups, regular pots and self-service pots. It is a slow growing species that doesn’t require strong light or CO2 injection to thrive, but these will promote the most robust growth.
It is characterised with short and narrow sword-like leaves giving it its common name MicroSword. It produces runners and will eventually form an attractive bright green lawn. It is one of a few aquarium plants that will tolerate cooler water making it ideal for ponds and is also known to tolerate brackish water with a low salt concentration.
