The Cyperus Helferi is one of our more popular plants as it is pretty low maintenance, once the initial climatisation has taken place. This plant has long bright green, grass-like leaves and is ideal for both small and large tanks.
One of only a few of the Cyperus family to thrive in underwater conditions the Cyperus Helferi requires plenty of light and CO2 injection to reach its potential, but this is not essential for its growth.
Coming from the Cyperaceae family and originating in Thailand this elegant plant is at it's best when used as a focal point in the midground or as a background accent. It grows up 35cm tall and has a roset from 15-25cm wide.
One of our favourite features of this plant is when it is placed in a tank with water flow. The Cyperus Helferi sways beautifully to the current giving it a very naturally look.
