Blyxa 'Red'

Blyxa 'Red, also known as Blyxa novoguineensis, is a great plant that is unlike most aquatic plants. It forms an almost push like appearance and propagates via side shoot off of the main stem. Blyxa Red is very similar to the more common Blyxa Japonica with the exception of the red coloring rather than green. While this plant isn't beginner friendly, it can be easy to keep with proper lighting and fertilizer.

Excellent customer service and great healthy product

Blyxa Red Order

I bought 12. The packaging was awesome, but after opening the packages, you could quickly determine 3 or 4 did not make it through shipping. The other eight still had white roots versus mush roots. This is my first time purchasing this blyxa red as a submerged plant versus previously finding it as emergent in another city while traveling. The other eight have started to grow new leaves after adding substrate additives directly near the roots.

Dying plants

I just want to let you know that the plants came in a couple of days back but they were not in a good situation. They were pretty roughed up. They were planted the same day I got them and 2 already melted at this point.

Just wanted to let you know to prevent the same thing from happening to other customers.

Review Update (4/19):

Well, the plants all melted. However, the customer support is truly awesome. They had communicated and issued an apology and a refund without me asking for it. I really appreciate the gesture and time they took. I will definitely buy again when they have this in stock.
