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.



Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape. For this reason, many aquascapers and planted tank enthusiasts use products by Aquasabi.

Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.

When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.

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)
