Oxygen Plants

Needlegrass

Needlegrass, also known as Eleocharis acicularis, is a versatile and attractive plant for ponds and wetlands. With its fine, grass-like leaves, Eleocharis creates a lush, natural look along pond edges and in shallow waters.

For oxygen plants, I recommend a minimum of 10 to 12 individual plants per m³ (1000 liters of water) and 2 baskets of 8 plants per m². The amount needed depends on how quickly you want the pond to balance and your visual requirements.

Frequently asked questions about Needlegrass

Pond Advice

Eleocharis are often planted directly in the pond bottom, but we supply them including complete pond baskets (with clay, nutrients and substrate) for controlled growth.

Eleocharis grows best in shallow water or moist soil along the pond edge, where it can receive adequate sunlight.

Eleocharis is a low-maintenance plant that thrives in stable water conditions. It may need to be pruned back in the fall.

Eleocharis contribute to water quality, provide shelter for pond animals and give a natural look to the pond edge.

Most species of Eleocharis withstand cold weather well and do not require special winter care.

Eleocharis

Eleocharis adds a subtle, natural beauty to ponds. With its dense growth habit, it forms an attractive green mat that is ideal for creating a "soft" transition between land and water.

Needlegrass pond

Besides looking beautiful, Needlegrass is also very useful for the pond. It helps various pond animals by giving them places to hide and breed. It also helps keep the water clean. These benefits make Needlegrass a great choice for anyone who wants to keep their pond natural and alive.

Needlegrass care

To keep Needlegrass healthy and lush in the pond, it is important to follow some simple care tips. Make sure the plant gets plenty of sunlight and is in moist, nutrient-rich soil. It is advisable to prune back excess growth in the fall to keep the plant fresh and vital the following season. Regular monitoring of the growth and spread of Needlegrass helps to maintain a balanced and attractive pond.
