Blyxa Japonica

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 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.
