Eleocharis Obtusa, Common Spikerush
Common Spike Rush is an aquatic plant suitable for wet soils, water ponds and aquariums. They are super thin elongated spikes that grows in bunches or clumps. The spikes can fully grow underwater till they eventually submerge to the water surface, reaching up to four feet. This plant can be used as a beautiful accent for your aquarium and offers a fish habitat similar to that of a real pond. Each spike bears a ripe single-seeded fruit at the tip of their stems during late summer. The fruit may bear golden yellow in color and is nutritional for birds. These rushes are low maintenance and thrive with very little effort from owners.
