Bamboo Plant (Blyxa japonica) Tissue Culture
Bamboo Plant is an increasingly popular, grass like plant that can form a lush carpet and is an excellent foreground plant in larger aquariums as well as a great background plant in nano aquariums!
This listing is for the tissue culture form of Bamboo Plant. Tissue cultures are superior to traditional forms of aquarium plants in many ways. They are produced in a completely sterile environment which eliminates the possibility of them carrying pest snails or algae spores. They have a shelf life (before introduction to the aquarium) of several months if properly maintained and they are housed in a nutrient gel until introduced to the aquarium. To introduce a tissue culture plant to the aquarium, simply rinse off as much nutrient gel as possible, then plant as usual. The nutrient gel will not harm your aquarium.
