Microsorum 'Black Forest' is a rare variant of Microsorum. It's growth and requirement is similiar to its well known relative Java Fern. 'Black Forest' main difference is it's darker color, thicker texture making it far more hardy than its better known relative Microsorum pteropus (Java Fern)
Microsorum pteropus, commonly known as Java fern after the Indonesian island of Java, can be found in Malaysia, Thailand and some regions of China. It is a highly variable plant with several different geographic varieties that vary in leaf size and shape. Found in its natural habitat growing attached to roots and rocks, it can grow in both fully and partially submerged environs.
This plant is easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal rhizome. Sometimes plantlets start to grow on the leaf edges and if you leave these intact long enough, you'll get a plant you can detatch and grow. Note that the black spots under the leaves are sporangia (reproductive organs) and not signs of disease as many believe.
If it is planted in the bottom, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot.
Growth Rate: Slow
Light Demand: Low
Only the best!
I’ve been using live plants in my aquariums for a little over two years. I get a lot of them from the aquascaperoom website. I have never had any problems, all the plants arrive very healthy and I bought their fertilizer tablets and liquid fertilizer and both are amazing for helping keep my plants healthy. They got so much variety on the website and the shipping is amazing. I can’t recommend them enough, you won’t be sorry you bought plants from this amazing business.

My plant order came fast and was in excellent condition. They're all thriving and were obviously well cared for before shipping. Great service and I'll be ordering again.
Express Shipping with DOA!
The customer service here was absolutely above and beyond! I had 2 items arrive in not so good health but that probably happened during shipping and not because of the company, regardless I was refunded the 110% store credit for the items. Everything was well packed upon my next order and even came with a 72hr heat pack for the plants! I will do a lot more shopping here and will recommend it to anyone! Thank you Aquascaperoom!
Best Customer Service!
Such an amazing customer service. I ordered a few plants and some didnt look too good. I contacted them and they responded quickly. They took time to help me and walked me through what to do with the plants. They are very kind and understanding. I will be purchasing more from them in the future.
Great Local Business
I have been in contact with the store since January in order to get the right selection of plants. Even with the pandemic and lack of supplies they were able to get my full selection which was pretty big. The quality of Tropica plants are impeccable. They answered all my questions and help me out with many tips regarding how to best plant my selection. If you wish to support a local business and get the best selection of plants 100% recommend using Aquascaperoom Canada.
