Crepidomanes cf. Malabaricum

The new fern Crepidomanes cf. malabaricum is a real rarity. It belongs to the bristle fern family and rather resembles a moss than a fern. In its natural habitat it grows terrestrially on large rocks and is only covered by water in the rainy season. There is only a small amount of cultivation experience; however, it also grows when permanently under water. In this case, growth can be classified as extremely slow. Crepidomanes is an especially good feature for delicate aquascaping layouts. The fragile rhizomes should ideally be attached to stones or roots.

  • Novelty in aquatics
  • Endemic miniature fern from India
  • Extremely slow growing
  • Easy to care for in semi-shade to shade
  • Well suited for nano aquariums
