Similar in care as the blyxa japonica. I have mine in 2wpg, flourite/sand mix, DIY co2, and soft, neutral to slightly acidic water. From "Care Fragile and rarely available. Soft acidic water with a nutrient rich substrate will aid in growth. Strong specimens can have up to 100 leaves. Most common propagation in the aquarium is by splitting, but strong specimens will readily flower. Flowers that reach above the waters surface will open, but are quite small. Flowers that are submerged are cleistogamous. ***Special note*** This plant seems to have a slight sensitivity to Flourish Excel. While it does not "melt" like some others, the color changes slightly and it seems to stress the plant enough to cause it to send out flowers."
