Common Name: Blyxa Japonica

Blyxa Japonica is a popular aquarium plant, made famous by the renowned aquascaper Takashi Amano.  Amano frequently used this plant to create a bushy effect in the background or midground of his aquascapes.  This plant grows fast with little demand, making it a great option for beginners and experienced aquascapers alike. The leaves can develop a golden or red hue when grown under high light with CO2 and fertilization. When kept in a nutrient-rich substrate such as Controsoil, this plant will really take off and fill in your aquarium.

Blyxa can be propagated by cutting the runners or small plantlets that develop from the mother plant.  New shoots will grow horizontally from the base of a more established plant, similar to Swords and Vals. 


  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • Please be sure to remove this plant from its pot. Remove the cotton surrounding the roots and plant into a quality substrate. For instructions on how to properly prep "potted" aquarium plants, click here.
  • CO2 injection will yield better growth.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
