Spartina pectinata rhizomes grew well under numerous experimental hydroperiods, however tiller production decreased in summer when plants were grown without flooding. Spartina pectinata growth was reduced when plants were co-cultured with the native Glyceria striata. Spartina pectinata grown with G. striata inhibited seed germination of the invasive Phalaris arundinacea, but did not stop the establishment of P. arundicacea fragments in moist soil.
