i always trim off a few sets of leaves, not the whole stem. i leave about a quarter of the leaves i cut. that makes it easier to plant and less apt to uproot.

as to the op, looks like yours took a beating during shipping. no light tends to make the leaves translucent. it should bounce back, give it time. pretty hardy plant ime and grows like a weed; i toss a handful every month or so in my compost pile.

JerSaint Thanks for the input. I can't wait for it to bounce back!

keithy with good co2, ferts and light it will bounce back in no time. That looks normal for transplanted blyxas.

Help with Blyxa!

Hi All,
I just won a ROAK for some Blyxa Japonica. It shipped quickly, and I acclimated it well but am not sure of the the senders parameters. I am wondering if my parameters are too different from theirs and this is causing a problem. I have heard of Crypt melt, is this something like that? The plants looked to have a pretty good root system, will it bounce back?
Here are some pics please help!
