Eleocharis Acicularis - 1L Potted Pond Plant

  • Catalogue Code 5130-6318
  • Pack Contents: 1x 1L Potted Pond Plant

This dramatic, eye-catching spiky pond plant acts as a good, sustainable natural nitrate remover in your pond giving your fish an on-going healthy water environment to thrive in.

Removing nitrates is essential for the preventative treatment of blanket weed and algae that depletes oxygen levels, choking your prize fish and other aquatic wildlife. It favours clay and silt bottoms in the pond.

Fondly known as Needle Spike Rush this leafy aquatic is both ornamental and helpful for providing shelter to fish and amphibians like frogs.
