Lilaeopsis mauritiana


This variety comes from Mauritius and is an endemic species found only on the island. It grows very well but, like Lilaeopsis brasiliensis, very slowly. Cross-sections of the leaf are circular and look a bit like miniature chives. Again, radical pruning will promote thicker, denser growth. This grass-like plant is ideal for Nano Cubes and Aquascaping.
