Microsorum pteropus ‘ Java Fern’ on ss mesh

(2 customer reviews)


The popular java fern is both versatile and easy to keep. In nature, it exists both submerged and on the banks of streams and rivers, its roots are “designed” to attach to hard surfaces such as rocks and woods, and this is how it should be grown in the aquarium. Java fern adapts to most aquariums and requires little lights. It is a slow-growing plant and older leaves may become tatty and blackened, at which point they should be removed for propagating plantlets. Java fern contains chemicals that deter most herbivorous fish from eating the leaves.

    Got the plants exactly as in the picture. I think it has 3 plants tied to the mat. In other sites it is 200 for a single plant. Feels like a bargain 😁. Go for it without a doubt if you are planning for a low tech planted tank or want a low maintenance plant. Will uptade the growth after a month if possible.
