Gardens Fibre Optic Plant
HAVE tried to grow the Fibre Optic Plant in my pond on three occasions
with no joy. They just go brown from the bottom up and die. Any
plant, otherwise known as Fairy Grass or Isolepsis sepulcharis
is really a shallow water Marginal plant and is often planted too
deep with the result you describe. I recommend that the water is
not any deeper than the soil surface. With the right water depth
this is actually quite an easy plant to grow and it benefits from
an occasional feed in the form of a water lily tablet.
