The Vesicularia dubyana commonly known as Java Moss is a bundle of moss with many purposes in a tropical aquarium. The versatile nature of this plant allows it to used in many ways. It can be tied to wood such as driftwood or redmoor, wood. It will also grow happily on rocks such as lava rock.
Simply unravel the moss and separate the strands of moss, place on your chosen piece of decor (I recommend one bunch per decor piece depending on size). Then fastening with fine line or aqua ties.
With adequate light and fertilisation, the plant will easily cover the line or tie and all you will see is the moss growing nicely on the piece of decor. Shrimp love to graze on this moss and if you place it on your substrate a carpet effect will form.

The moss is very nice, I expected slightly more but once you tease it apart and use some fishing line to attach it to wood or rocks it goes a long way I my 90 litre tank. It was a bit brown in places at the centre of the weight but I expect it to regenerate now it's in water under led lights.

Beautifully green, no brown bits. The fact that it comes bunched like this allowed me to just hide the bunch behind some rocks and make it look great with little effort.

being new to planted aquarium planting i was shocked at the tiny amount of moss however when you spread it over wood / rocks it goes a long way it had no brown bits and seems to be growing ok so far
Date Added: 01/11/2013 by Louis Finnie
When I 1st saw the moss I thought it was a bit on the small side but when unwrapped there's plenty to go round, all green and healthy, would definitely buy again.
Date Added: 08/10/2013 by Clarinda Chant
The moss arrived in good condition and went straight into my tank where it seems to be doing well - although early days yet for a living product!

Majority arrived in great condition, with only a few brown bits. (Important to note here that my plants were sent during the cold snap this January, perhaps the reason for the browning). Also, received plenty of moss. I was pleasantly surprised!
Date Added: 14/01/2013 by David Linthorne
Was a little disappointed to find some of the moss brown in colour on opening. Having said that there was still a good usable amount contained in the bunch when separated out. As with most moss, little goes a long way.
Date Added: 28/09/2012 by Kirsteen Spalding
A great moss and received more than I had expected but, like another reviewer, some was starting to waste away and had turned brown inside the wrapping. I would probably estimate about 60% of it had reached me in great condition.
Date Added: 11/07/2012 by Mike Buckle
It has brighten up my tank and I was able to split it up to very good effect - thank you
Date Added: 11/06/2012 by Frank Young
Generous amount, healthy, fast delivery, well packed.
Date Added: 03/05/2012 by Heidi Gaskin
Arrived nicely packaged. It was quite a bit smaller than I had expected. There was a small bit of it that had started to die already which couldn't be seen until I unrolled it in order to split it up into separate bunches. It has taken well to my tank, and although I can't yet seen any growth (its been in my tank well over a week), it has increased a great deal in its "greeness" and is now a very rich and dark green.
