Blyxa Japonica var. Alternifolia

Contrary to the more common form of Blyxa Japonica, the Althernifolia exhibits the undeniable red leaves. It appears to grow tall and will be more suitable for mid-background placement. As with most “reddish” plants, demands include adequate Nitrogen, Iron, CO2 with medium+ light. Certainly a  plant worth keeping if attainable.
