This Lilaeopsis is restricted to Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. It is likewise suitable as lawn-forming foreground plant as Lilaeopsis brasiliensis, however it has much narrower leaves with roundish cross section, so it has the appearance of a fine-leaved grass.
The Mauritius Micro Sword is very suitable for the aquascaping and has low demands. It grows rather slowly, this can be an advantage. Occasional radical cut-back promotes the development of a dense stand.
