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.
