Plant the hairgrass first, in the overall pattern you want them to take.
Then, take tweezers and use them to place "riccia fan fragments" deep in
b/n the hairgrass leaves.  You don't have to use pebbles to hold the riccia
down.  Best to use a rreeeaaalll sslloooowww growing hairgrass type to
limit any possible invasion problems.
