Notify me when this product is available:

Blyxa Japonica is a popular grass-like stem plant from Japan with bright green color and natural appearance. Made famous by Takashi Amano in his nature-style aquarium. It can be easily propagated by removing the side stems and re-planting them, which roots and forms another plant. The leaves can develop a golden or red hue when grown under high light with CO2 and fertilization.

      Excellent addition to my tank!

      I'm thrilled with my Blyxa purchase!! Arrived on time and packaged expertly. After planting gin my tank I had minimal melt. I've noticed over the past week new fresh brilliant green growth from the bundle. So glad I purchased this plant and will continue to use Aquarium Plants Factory as my go-to provider for plants.


      As others have commented in their reviews, the plants came in looking a little transparent but healthy. They had no roots at all and looked to be fresh clippings. After a week in the tank (and my brothers tank, both very established) they have melted. I have had to pull 3 of the 5 bunches totally and am holding out hope that something will take. I would not order these again and would look for tissue cultures or a source that provides an established plant with some roots to help with the transition from shipping and into a new environment. Overall my shipment from APF with the other plants was great and the Blyxa is the only plant that had issues.

      Not Easy

      Plant arrived healthy and green, but it didn't take me long to kill it. All 3 bunches melted within a week.

      Beautiful and plentiful

      I ordered this plant once over a year ago and it came all melted. APF refunded me, but I never got around to reordering it again until recently. This time it's super healthy, so many stems in a bunch, and is just a beautiful plant all around

      Just like everything else I’ve received from APF, this plant is perfect! Not a single slimy leaf!

      it is surviving

      came in and looked to be nice and healthy but doesn't look to be surviving the transitions I guess only time will tell
