Eleocharis acicularis is a low plant that has a grass-like appearance
with fine, filamentous leaves when growing conditions are good. One new way of
using it is as an anchor to keep a Riccia down. First keep the Riccia
down with pebbles, then plant the Eleocharis in the Riccia with
tweezers. There are more than 100 Eleocharis species, and they are
difficult to distinguish from each other.
