E Tenellus vs E quadricostatus

Hi Lori

You wouldn't happen to be Wade's wife would you?  If so tell him Alfred 
said Aloha!

There are 2 forms of E Tenellus to start with.

One had a solid green leave that is wider at the tip then the base.  If you 
are thinking of a front lawn, this is the one to get.  It will grow to max 
8 cm. but needs lot of light at least 3-1 for decent growth.

The other is lighter green in color and  is widest in the bottom half of 
the leave, then it tapers into a fine point.  Careful with this one.  My 
front lawn of this grew to over 12 inches making it an effective 
curtain!  It will grow in a light ratio of less then 2-1 and fast too!

E quad, can't help you there.  I don't know it.
