    Jana Fern

    This came in along with I believe it was 7 other plants. And they all came in looking extremely healthy and beautiful. The shipping has me worried as FedEx doesn’t like to update shipping very much. But they came in healthy. So that’s all that matters to me.

    Healthy plants!

    The potted Java ferns were very healthy and beautiful. I got 2 pots and they were very full. I was able to separate each pot onto 4 or 5 smaller plants that got distributed along the back of tank in a nice Java fern wall. So pretty! One week later they seem to be well-establish. Will definitely buy from this place again!

Description

 
 

Microsorum pteropus is a water fern that grows 15-30 cm tall and should be grown on wood or stone (attach with fishing line until it has gained a hold). If it is planted in the bottom, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot.

Natural History

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.

Pro Tips

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.

Type: Rhizomatous
Origin: Asia
Growth Rate: Slow
Light Demand: Low
CO2: Low
