    Anyone grown this? Easy grower? I saw some on a YouTube video and liked the look of it.

    Serious piece of cake. I got one strand as a free cutting. In 1 month it grew to occupy a 15*5cm area where it was around 10cm tall. The more you cut this plant the more it seems to grow.
    Cut it yesterday or I would have taken a pic to show you.
    It likes high light and grows well with CO2 but I do not know if the CO2 is a specific requirement.

    Interesting to come back to this. After some research I went ahead and ordered some stargrass. It's brilliant stuff. Quite delicate to handle but grows really well from cuttings and can be used to grow something tall and bushy or keep it trimmed for a carpeted look.

    It is a quick grower! I'm aiming for it to be a bit of a ground cover in my tank.
