Bolbitus heudelotii is a great-looking plant with fern like stems and leaves. With an eye-catching shade of green and lush cascading leaves this plant will bring an earthy and natural look to your aquarium. This plant reaches 15-40cm tall and wide. When planting do not cover the rhizome because it will rot.

Originating from Africa, the Bolbitus heudelotii, like the Anubias, prefer less light. However more CO2 will encourage lush growth. This plant will grow best when bound to wood or rock, they also prefer strong water movement so place close to a filter where possible.

Best plants I have ever bought/received. Where as other companies I have dealt with send them flat in a packet these were delivered with others well packaged both around the plant and inside as there was some water around the roots. I WILL be using again.

This plant is growing really well just pushed into a crevice in a rock, interesting leaf shapes and colours, I have CO2 and add fertilizer every day, but not very high light

Have never grown this plant before but judging from the excellent specimen received, I have missed out on an attractive plant.

Is this easy to tie to wood?


Sure is. Use our Aqua Fine Line and it makes the work very easy.

do you have to tie to wood? would it grow well in substrate?


Yes tie to wood only.

Hi I have tied my fern on to rock but higher up, should I have tied it lower down so the roots can reach the substrate.


As long as it's tied it's happy
