 Hi,
 
 My  carpet  hair  grass  is  not  growing  at  all,  its  been  a  month  that  i  have  planted  it  and  no  improvement........in  fact  i  feel  its  melting,  the  other  stem  plants  are  doing  fine  though.
 
 Tank:  18*18*18  inch  cube
 Lighting:  36*2  PLL
 Co2:  Cylinder  with  flow  of  2  bubbles  per  sec
 Soil:  Chinese  brand
 Filtration:  Hang  back  filter  
 Dosing:  Plant  food  10  ml  every  week
 
 This  is  the  second  time  i  am  facing  the  same  problem  trying  to  grow  hair  grass.
 
 The  pics  are  taken  with  my  mobile  so  excuse  the  quality.

 One  suggestion  though:
 Your  light  &  CO2  specs  are  pretty  much  on  the  high-tech  side.  But  your  dosing  is  like  PMDD  (low-tech).  You  would  do  well  to  switch  your  dosing  routine  to  EI.  The  problem  with  these  chinese  products  is  we  don't  really  know  how  good  they.  I  have  used  them  and  had  decent  success,  but  we  really  don't  know  where  that  success  is  coming  from.  If,  for  example,  you  use  ADA  AquaSoil,  we  know  for  sure  that  it  is  nutrient  rich  and  we  know  for  a  fact  that  you  will  not  have  to  dose  for  atleast  2-4  weeks.  But  we  don't  know  how  to  work  around  these  Chinese  products.  Just  like  their  political  system,  their  products  are  a  big  mystery!  Chuckle  
 
 Your  pics  are  not  that  clear.  But  going  by  what  you  say,  it  must  be  nutrient  deficiency.  Because  your  high  light  &  high  CO2  will  use  up  a  lot  of  available  nutrients.  You  must  supplement  nutrients  well  for  good  plant  growth.
 
 As  I  said  earlier,  wait  for  a  bit  longer  to  observe  what  is  happening.  How  are  your  other  plants  doing?  What  other  plants  do  you  have?  What  is  your  water  temp?  Update  your  location.

 Yup  add  more  ferts.  Also  trim  the  hairgrass  to  1-2  cm  above  the  gravel.  This  will  encourage  new  growth  and  make  is  spread.
