Soil Type Preferred
 As long as the soil is moist, the Spikerush will thrive. It can moderate most soil types, chalky, loamy, sandy, or clay. It doesn’t mind either acid or neutral soil.

Spikerush prefers a southern or western exposure to the sun as it grows at its best in full sun. It can thrive in either exposed or sheltered areas as long as it has plenty of suns.

The Spikerush is best known as an aquatic plant that is quite hardy. It may be described as a green matchstick growing in a clump. It forms in dense mats, is upright and grasslike similar to other grassy plants but has a seed head. It is fast-growing, dense foliage that requires very little maintenance. It spreads by using underground stems called rhizomes.
