This pretty little grass-like Sedge from Australia has long been cultivated for the ornamentation of greenhouses and for decorative work. It grows readily in any ordinary good open compost, and is increased by division of the tufts, generally in spring, just as growth is about to begin. A night temperature of 60° F. is suitable for establishing the plants, but it may be afterwards reduced by 10 degrees or even more.
