      Grass as in the terrestrial ones? No, they won't. If you meant dwarf sagittaria, yes, they do.

      And no drug reference, people. This is a banned subject. Thank you.

      Like lupid said, go to a sight that sells plants and search for either dwarf sagittaria or sagittaria subulata

      Why ask a question if you know the answer?

      Echinodorus Lilaeopsus isn't as easy to grow as Sagittaria Subulata, and S. Subulata is a ton cheaper. If you're going more for lawn grass instead of monkey grass you might also want to look up E. tenelus. It's another type of microsword.

      I've got Echinodorus tenellus. It doesn't grow as lush as lawn grass but it can get pretty lush.
      I agree with the Subulata choice. Thats your best bet.
