full and lush July 16, 2016
Reviewer: Kelly from Stockton, CA United States  
The first hairgrass was sooo tall it looked folded to get in the box so it suffered an ill fate. The second, although shorter(not much) was nice and lush.

Hardy, for me anyway July 16, 2016
Reviewer: Angela White from Edmond, OK United States  
I felt compelled to review this plant because I am so delighted with it!  I have had really rotten luck with my plants because of my unusual water chemistry.  I can kill about anything including Wisteria and even Water Sprite.   However my Giant Hairgrass is going strong!  I have even been able to move new growth into another tank I have.  I strongly recommend this plant!

Great Plant! July 16, 2016
Reviewer: Sondra from Vermont, United States  
First time trying the giant hairgrass and it did not disappoint! Very healthy specimen and large enough so that I could separate it into 5 or so different plants for a more natural look. My tank is 18 inches deep and it grows out of the water a little in the back where the tank is open. Looks great!

Pleased May 7, 2015
Reviewer: K from Austin, TX United States  
Added a pot to my order as I thought it might work in my new tank set up and my partner was quite taken with it in a picture of a tank online. Very healthy, bit of algae on it, but nothing problematic, divided readily into about three good sized plants and adds wonderful drama to my planting.

Beautiful Quality Plants October 21, 2014
Reviewer: Gary from Southern Oregon  
Nice thick roots and plenty of healthy green plants about 14-16" tall. My fish really like the addition of these plants to their tank.
