Over here the swamp grass grows in depressions that get flooded
as the water recedes the grass grows a long the waters edge.
Generally when the pan is dry it has been fully covered by the grass.
When I empty my bags of grass there is generally a large amount of seed gathered in the
bags base. I generally tip this in my aviary around an area which is regularly damp and the grass grows
easily. I guess the key is constantly damp until the grass is maybe 150mm plus high
