    Description

    Blyxa japonica is a plant that only grows under water. It is found in low ponds, swamps and slow-flowing forest streams with a high iron content in the subtropic and tropic zones of East and South-East Asia. It forms beautiful relatively low-growing to medium-high grasslike bushes with very narrow green to reddish leaves.This Blyxa species is not overly difficult to cultivate if you fulfil some basic requirements: sufficient light (0.5-1 watts per litre or more), a CO2 supply and fertilisation with nitrate, phosphate, potassium and micronutrients. In an optimal environment and under sufficient light, the leaves will assume golden and reddish hues, and the plant will develop a more compact growth habit. Under insufficient light, B. japonica has a higher, lankier growth habit and it is green in colour.

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

    Blyxa japonica grows exclusively submersed, in shallow ponds, in swamps and slow-flowing woodland rivers rich in iron, in subtropic and tropical regions of East and South-East Asia. Throughout its area of distribution, it can also be found in rice paddies. This Blyxa species has become a very familiar plant in the aquarium hobby due to its attractive, grasslike, bushy habit.

    Its cultivation is not especially difficult, if some basic requirements are met: sufficient light (0.5-1 watt per litre or more), CO2 supply and fertilisation with nitrate, phosphate, potassium and micronutrients. When cultivated in optimal conditions and under sufficient light, the plant displays golden and reddish hues and a more compact growth habit. Under insufficient light, B. japonica grows higher and greener, with a more lanky habit. (read more)

    Pflanze kam schon ziemlich lädiert an. Alle Blätter der Stängel sahen aus wie angefressen und waren löchrig. (mehr lesen)
