  • pH Level: 6.0-7.5
  • Water Hardness: Soft to moderately hard (2-15 dGH)
  • Lighting: Moderate to high lighting levels are recommended for optimal growth. Provide 8-10 hours of light per day, preferably with full spectrum LED lighting.
  • CO2 Requirement: While not strictly necessary, CO2 supplementation can promote faster and more robust growth, especially in higher light setups. However, Blyxa novoguineensis can grow well without CO2 injection.
  • Substrate: A nutrient-rich substrate is preferred, as Blyxa novoguineensis is a heavy root feeder. Use a high-quality planted aquarium substrate or add root tabs to provide essential nutrients.
  • Propagation: Propagated by division. Simply separate healthy clumps of the plant and replant them into the substrate.
  • Care Level: Moderate to high. Regular pruning and maintenance are necessary to prevent overcrowding and encourage compact growth. Trim any yellowing or dead leaves to promote new growth.
  • Special Considerations: This plant originates from marshy areas and appreciates stable water conditions with good water flow. It can tolerate low to moderate light levels but will grow more slowly and may exhibit less intense coloration. Regular fertilization with a complete liquid fertilizer containing micronutrients is recommended to support its growth.

By providing these optimal parameters and diligent care, Blyxa novoguineensis can thrive in your aquarium, adding a unique and attractive element to your aquascape.
