Java Fern

Regular price $12.00

If you are just starting out with plants in your aquarium, Java Fern is the plant for you. You can't kill this plant unless you really go out of your way to do it. Java Fern grows by having a horizontal rhizome and producing vertical leaves. When planting the Java Fern, do not bury the rhizome in your substrate. Only bury the roots, attach it to driftwood, or attach to rocks.

The leaves on the Java Fern may turn black and start to disintegrate, but this is normal; leave the plant and within a few days to few weeks you will see little baby plants coming out of the dying leaves. This is how Java Fern adjusts and propagates to new tank conditions.
