Lilaeopsis brasiliensis can grow very compact, but a ''lawn effect''
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. L. brasiliensis can be used in
garden ponds, and also tolerates low salt concentrations in brackish aquariums.
