I tried these after reading that they are easy to propagate. This was not my experience. It took about 6 months for them to start new shoots about 5 inches from the original ones... since the last two weeks two more shoots are growing. It seems that it likes CO2 and high light and of course fert.

I love how it looks ...... to me it looks better than the much more expensive Eriocaulon Parkeri ...... I have both but the Dwarf Sag is growing better and fast than the EP ....... I paid $1 for the Dwarf Sag and $8 a plant for the Erio Parkeri ...... they look about the same and cost is a big difference ......... that's my 2 cents worth!!!

I have this plant and it will grow in just about any tank conditions, but it is every spotty and for me hasn't given a very thick carpet cover that most people are looking for.

Have dwarf sag as the only plant in a 20g long since february. It took a while to take off though. It does spread fairly well after a while, but will take a while to really fill in the voids. Not really sure how well the name dwarf sag applies to it though, it grows easily 6"+ in some places.

What kind of lighting to you have? I have it growing in my 40gal and it hasn't grown over 2 inches in height.

2 22" 24w t5 ho. This is the fertilizer regimen I use or well I just guesstimate a fair bit.
20~40gal
50% H20 change-weekly
1/4 Tsp-KN03 3x a week
1/16 Tsp-KH2P04 3x aweek
1/2 Tsp-GH booster once a week
5ml or 1/16Tsp-Trace 3x a week

That could be why mine haven't gotten that big. I don't dose my tank. I did a dirt with clay, muriate of potash, dolomite, and then a layer of substrate over it. Only extra thing that I do add is a co2 booster.

I have it growing in my 29G tank with Coralife light strip T5NO 2x 18W. Seems to be growing more since I started dosing with Brightwell aquatics FlorinFe (iron oxide, iron sulfate). Now I have swithced to Select aquatics dry ferts (selectaquatics.com, Greg Sage 303-204-8662). Also dose with metricide diluted in place of Seachem excel.

You really don't want dwarf sag as a carpet plant,more like pygmy chain sword,dwarf hairgrass,HC(dwarf baby tears),Dwarf four leaf clover...Just a few off the top of my head...If you want some Pygmy Chain Sword let me know,I grow massive amounts of it...
