I received a Dwarf Hairgrass (Eleocharis acicularis) from Asia back in 2004 and they were very short range about 1 to 1.5 inches vs the only Dwarf Hairgrass (Eleocharis acicularis) that we found in the US LFS which it is around 2 to 3 or even 4 inches. Or the shorter one should be E. Belem maybe??

The shorter one I got was later comfirm that was came from Japan and when I was there the direct translation for it was "Mini Hairgrass". Is there a official name for it or is it new on this forum since I can not find it here.

Interesting. Were the yboth growing in similar conditions? Some plants will exhibit different growth in varying conditions. Or, it could be a variation of the same species in two very different parts of the world. Or, it could very well be two species. Hmmm...

Nope it is not like that at all. They are under the same light, water, aqua soil. I have these for years but did re-order more in 2006 cause one time I mix with the Dwarf hair grass and can't tell the difference on it. It is very common in Asia, almost everyone have both in the store. I actually bought it once here in APC just want to see if that is the same as mine.
