One of the first  types of plants I'd suggest for a beginner!

Java Ferns (Microsorum pteropus) are one of the most difficult aquatic plants to kill, and they are fairly slower growing. They won't need anything special in terms of lighting, filtration, or temperatures, and pretty much do just fine no matter what.

Java ferns are slower growing, and considered epiphytes; that is, they grow out of rhizomes (not roots) and attach themselves to other plants or aquatic decoration. They are very popular to attach to driftwood and rocks, and provide excellent forage and shelter for baby shrimp and fish fry.

Java ferns are hearty plants, similar to things like Swords or Anubias; so if you have fish that are nippy and like to dig (small cichlids, loaches, goldfish etc), these plants will work for your set up. 

Their broad tolerance for aquarium conditions makes them an absolute favorite for aquarists across skill levels. They can grow immersed, submerged, and even in brackish water! Try your hand at a Bonsai Driftwood centerpiece by using cyanoacrylate glue to attach the rhizome to wood.

One order is for one 4- 8" tall rosette; branched rhizome varies in it's natural state, will have at least 4 leaves.

EMERGENT-GROWN

Growing requirements:

  • 65-80 Degrees Fahrenheit
  • Ph 6-8
  • Low to Medium light intensity.
  • Slow growth speed

As I like to keep real ecosystems in my aquariums, there's always the possibility of harmless snail or dwarf shrimp hitchhikers!

Looking for the interesting 'Trident' Java fern? How about the Narrowleaf or Frilly 'Windelov' varieties? Or Potted version?

Everything arrived happy and healthy! The snails were quite large which is great, and they started moving around immediately after entering the tank.

Ferns are growing well in the aquarium, some melting at the start but that’s to be expected
