Description:

Cyperus helferi is an excellent aquarium plant to add a grass like look in the aquarium.  The long leaves of Cyperus helferi wave in the current and are very pleasing to the eye.  Plant Cyperus helferi in multiple pieces to help create a full backdrop or plant near moving water in the aquarium to see it move in the current.  Cyperus species have been popular in the water garden industry for many years, but Cyperus helferi is the first species to be used totally submerged in an aquarium.
