(Southeast Asia)

Aquarium UseAttached to rocks or bogwood, spawning plant Java Fern

Java Fern

Growth RateModerate
Difficulty LevelEasy
Temperature21oC or higher (70oF)
Water ChemistryNot critical
SubstrateNot applicable
PropagationBy cuttings
CommentsThe plant should be attached to rocks or bogwood, where it will soon become firmly attached and begin to creep along the surface. It is easy to propagate - simply remove part of the plant and attach to a new surface.

The Java Moss usually available in the aquatic trade has been known under the scientific name of Vesicularia dubyana, but this refers to a different species that is a bit more demanding.
