Re: Cyperus helferi

I've been growing Cyperus helferi for a couple of years.
My experience of it is C. helferi is a rather easy plant,
but is slow growing and can be easily covered with green spot

The tank is a 90 gallon with six 40W tubes and CO2 injection.
The six tubes are with poor reflectors.  KH and GH are both
around 5 degrees.

Trimming: I've tried cutting it once in the middle (height
wise) and it works.

Propogation: I split the plant from the root (the way people
usually split Amazon swords).  Since the plant is slow
growing, I only have four from the original two.

C. helferi is an interesting alternative to large vals.
