Planting Area

These plants should be grown in midground and foreground.


Rhizome, when first planting this plant take care not to bury the rhizome completely into the substrate. Propagation is easy as the rhizome can be split and then placed into shallow water, when it has toughened it can then be placed onto the substrate.


Easy to grow, Acorus gramineus pusillus will have to be cut back on a regular basis in order to prevent it from overtaking the tank.

Short Description

This plant a smaller version of the more common Acorus gramineus. The leaves have a more golden colour but the shape is the same. They can be used as border plants for ponds as long as they are kept in moist soil. If partially submerged they will produce a flower but it is hard to obtain seeds from these.
