Description
Green grass-like plant. This plant multiplies very quick because it forms a lot of runners.

My experiences
Although it's a easy to keep plant, I didn't had it in my aquarium for a long time. This because it attracted a lot of algae's (pointed algae's).

Place and lighting in my aquarium
This plant stood in the middle of my aquarium. The lighting I used at the time was a 0.42 Watt/liter lumilux TL lighting (2*18 Watt).
