Utricularia Graminifolia is a rare carpeting plant that can grow very compact while remaining short. It is a type of carnivorous bladderwort that can consume microscopic organisms.

Based on Aquarzon's research, this plant is shrimp-safe as its traps are too small to trap or consume a shrimp. It mostly just targets very tiny organisms.

While the easiest carpeting plant is Micranthemum Monte Carlo, the Utricularia Graminifolia is a rare type of carpeting plant that can give some unique "leafy grass" appearance to an aquarium tank.

Based on our experience, to grow this successfully, Aquarzon recommends the following:

1) Grow this in an acidic water aquarium
Based on our research, most people that successfully grow this plant has a PH 6-7 aquarium tank. Our own experience also indicates that this plant is best grown in acidic waters. 

2) Established tank
As this plant is carnivorous bladderwort, it needs to be able to consume microscopic organisms which are usually present in established tanks. Therefore, we only recommend getting this plant if your tank has been running for at least 1 month.
