    Healthy and pretty

    These water sprites arrived healthy and full! I planted some in the substrate and some I’m floating. Each pot could be separated into several smaller plants. I look forward to seeing how they grow. But the leaves were so green and healthy upon arrival I couldn’t believe it (in winter too)! These people package everything very nice—worth the extra cost to get the guarantee as it comes so fast! Highly recommend!!

Description

 
 
 
 

Ceratopteris thalictroides is a pantropical fern, 15-30 cm high and 10-20 cm wide..
This plant normally grows fast, but the addition of CO2 may be necessary to promote growth. In small, open aquariums, it can grow out of the tank and form beautiful surface leaves. The finely branched leaves are very decorative and provide good contrast to other leaf shapes. In good light Ceratopteris thalictroides grows fast and helps prevent algae by consuming large amounts of nutrients. This makes it a good starter plant in small aquariums.

Pro Tips

In good conditions, it produces runners which spread over the bottom. Very pale leaves are a sign of a shortage of micro-nutrients.

Type: Rosulate
Origin: Asia
Growth rate: Moderate
Height: 15 - 30+
Light demand: Medium
CO2: Not Required but will increase healthy growth
