The Variegated Japanese Dwarf Rush, also known as the Variegated Japanese Sweetflag, or Acorus Varigated Midground Plant has stiff, shiny, dark green leaves forming dense clumps. The arching foliage has cream to chartreuse stripes, making them a colorful addition to any aquarium. A grass-like plant that is native to Asia, the Variegated Japanese Dwarf Rush can be grown around ponds in a bog environment, and can be used in terrariums and aquariums as long as it is not fully submersed.

The Variegated Japanese Dwarf Rush is a great plant for the first-time live aquatic plant keeper. It is a slow growing, hardy plant that may be kept in cold water aquariums as well as tropical aquariums. It will also tolerate light ranging from full light to partial shade.

The best way to propagate the Variegated Japanese Dwarf Rush is by dividing the rhizomes. Let the new divisions get started in a pot for a few weeks before adding them back to the aquarium. Sometimes they will grow offshoots, which may also be used for propagation.
