Common Name: Japanese Bamboo Plant


The Blyxa japonica originates in the nutrient rich shallow pools of water, swamps and slowly flowing rivers in East and South East Asia.

The plant has gained notoriety thanks to the late Takashi Amano and his aquarium works from the 90s.

Blyxa has a distinct grass-like appearance that moves easily in the circulating aquarium water creating a sense of dynamicity in comparison to other more robust plants. A wonderful foreground to midground plant in Tropica's Medium Category. The plant can grow from 10 - 20+ cm
