Lilaeopsis brasiliensis is a plant species in the family Apiaceae


Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (family Apiaceae) is a small creeping grass like plant that does very well both as an aquatic plant or a emersed plant. This plant comes from South America and can stand very low temperatures but grows faster if the temperature is warm and there is ample light. These easy plants can simply be divided up to propagate them. Flowering is apparently not often observed.


Lilaeopsis brasiliensis from South America can grow very compact, but a “lawn effect” (4-7 cm tall) is only achieved at high light intensity. When planting in the aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed a few centimetres apart to help the plants grow together more quickly. Place in an open position without shading from other plants to ensure good light. Lilaeopsis brasiliensis can be used in garden ponds, and also tolerates low salt concentrations in brackish aquariums.
