This uncommon stem plant was introduced under erroneous names such as "Arthraxon sp." and "Murdannia keisak", probably from tropical Asia. However, it is probably a not yet identified Cyanotis species, possibly also Belosynapsis ciliata. It belongs to the Commelinaceae family as well as Murdannia keisak but differs from the latter for example by smaller size and slower growth. As terrestrial plant it has an ascending, creeping or hanging habit while it grows upright in its submerged form. Its rigid stems resemble bamboo shoots, therefore it was already called "Aquarium bamboo".

Good nutrient and CO2 supply as well as medium to strong lighting is recommendable. The plant grows relatively slowly in its underwater form. The emersed plant has a higher growth rate, provided that it roots in moist, nutrient-rich bottom.

Cyanotis sp. provides an interesting accent, especially as a group in the aquarium midground. It is a smaller, slower growing alternative to Murdannia keisak. The terrestrial form can be used for paludaria and moist terraria where it may creep from the land part into the water.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

Pflanze sieht genau wie auf dem Bild aus. Wirkt allerdings etwas mickrig. Im AQ eingesetzt hat sie wohl Umstellungsprobleme, denn sie verliert mehr und mehr Blätter, während alle... (read more)
