Microsorum (Java Fern) on Small Lava Stone
DescriptionMicrosorum pteropus is a water fern from Asia, which grows 15-30 cm tall. This plant comes pre attached to a small pices of lava stone (as pictured, typical size 5-10cm in length). Ideal for smaller aquariums and nano tanks.
If it is planted in the bottom, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot. Easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal rhizome. A hardy plant which grows in all conditions. The black spots under the leaves are sporangia (reproductive organs), not signs of disease as many believe.
About as easy as they come, Java Fern can thrive in many conditions. Low tech or high tech, CO2 or no CO2, high light or low light.
