Acorus gramineus 'pusillus'
Acorus gramineus var. pusillus is a terrarium plant. Dwarf Acorus is sometimes used as an aquarium decoration but will only survive several months completely submerged. After a few months of aquarium use, it must be grown above water for several months to rejuvenate. It is, however a very attractive and recommended terrarium plant where its unusual form and small stature makes it a delightful accent.
