    So i picked up some 1-2 grow. I wanted to create a bottom lawn.

    Followed instructions. 4 days later its brown. Should i assume its dead and pull it out?

    How high is your light? What substrate? Are you dosing CO2?

    I would just give them time to get acclimated to your tank. Newly planted plants often lose their original growth. Hopefully you will start seeing new growth soon.

    Dhg will need higher lighting to do well. Also when planting it’s helpful to plant in as small of a clump as you have patience for, no more then thickness of a finger.
    For alternate carpet ideas check dwarf sag. Will be more tolerant of your conditions (doesn’t always love excel)

    Dwarf hairgrass is a more difficult plant and does better in a soil substrate with plant lights and CO2. It could possibly bounce back, but I wouldn't count on it.
