This species is one of the easiest to grow of all Eriocaulons. It is a small plant.(3cm high) that grows slowly but can eventually form a carpet(splitting of the mother plant) in the fore ground of medium sized tanks. It is especially recommended for Nano tanks where a group can be a focal point in your aquascape. It is especially suited to the water conditions required for growing shrimp. Lighting can be medium-high.
