    Beautiful moss

    This plant arrived in perfect condition, it’s already growing after only a few days. Highly recommended.

    Such a great deal!

    I received a very generous portion, making this is a steal. Moreover, I cannot emphasize enough how impressed I am with how clean and healthy all my items were (including this java moss). I originally only intended to cover the top of a ceramic jar, but I have so much left over that I could do a java moss mall or carpet several other items (once I learn how to).

Description

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Java moss is the most popular aquarium moss there is. It is very undemanding regarding water parameters and lighting, but looks best under strong light and a good nutrient supply. Taxiphyllum barbieri is rather fast-growing and attaches quickly to all surfaces, which makes it an ideal moss for accentuating the hardscape or for hiding technical equipment in the tank.

Portion

Each portion size will be in a 2oz cup (Golf Ball Size) 

Natural History

Taxiphyllum barbieri is most commonly called Java moss, and it is the most popular and the most wide-spread aquarium moss there is. Often it is mistaken for Vesicularia dubyana, however, as early as 1982, the moss expert Zennosuke Iwatsuki identified Java moss he got from aquarists as Taxiphyllum barbieri. Some years ago, his results were published to a large audience (Benito C. Tan & al. 2004); in this publication, T. barbieri is called Java moss and the real Vesicularia dubyana is given the name Singapore moss. Unfortunately, the authors were unaware that the original Java moss cultivated in Europe over 50 years ago was indeed Vesicularia dubyana and that it was more or less completely supplanted by the faster-growing Taxiphyllum barbieri, which was introduced to the hobby later.

Pro Tips

The longer you leave moss untouched, the tidier the growth will be. However, if the moss gets too thick, the parts no longer getting light will turn yellow. To mitigate this, trim layers away as they grow.

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.

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.

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!

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.
