Crested Pteropus 20cm Bare Root


Java Fern is hands down one of the most popular plants in the aquarium hobby. It is a slow grower and will thrive even in low light aquariums. A great addition to an aquascape, usually placed in the middle or background. Its thick, long leaves provide excellent cover for fish and fry.

Java fern will grow across your aquarium via its rhizome while sending leaves vertically upwards toward the light source. It will produce baby plants on the undersides of its leaves which can be removed and replanted if desired.

  • Scientific Name: Microsorum pteropus
  • Native To: Southeast Asia
  • Skill Level: Easy
  • Co2 Requirement: None
  • Preferred Fertilizer: Liquid 
  • Placement: We recommend attaching Java fern to rocks, wood or decor rather than burying it in substrate. We find it easiest to attach using thread or aquarium glue

Robust Java fern plants can often survive in Goldfish and African cichlid tanks because of their tougher leaves.
