Water Sprite Lace (Indian Fern)

Regular price $10.00

Sprite Lace (Indian Fern) is a variation of regular Water Sprite. Water Sprite Lace's leaves are more narrow and look like lace. Next to Water Wisteria, this would be the next easiest plant to grow in your tank. Water Sprite Lace can become a plant similar to a sword with many stems coming from a central location. However, most people float this plant in their aquarium because it is difficult to keep rooted sometimes. 

Water Sprite Lace will grow in just about any tank, but with decent light, and a little co2, it will take over. It is an excellent source to absorb Nitrates from fish waste out of the water. Water Sprite Lace also is great for fry to hide in. Water Sprite Lace will propagate similar to Java Fern where it will send out baby Water Sprite from its leaves. You can either let it float or put the stem in the substrate and wait for baby plants to emerge from the leaves. You will have so much you won't know what to do with it all!

Please note: Often times, this plant may have some browning leaves on it. We normally would remove these, but they usually produce baby plants. We like to leave them on so you get extra plants. You can remove the browning leaves and toss if you would like.
