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.

We ordered this plant because it was said to resistant to the eating habits of Silver Dollars. It arrived well packaged , in good condition and looks very well in the tank. So far the fish have not chosen to eat it, but it is only two weeks

We have been buying plants to set up our aqaurium from a range of places - but these ones from Aqua Essentials are the best we have received - this is a really lovely healthy plant that provides a nice dappled shade for the fish - arrived very quickly and has settled into the tank very well.

Healthy plant received & it seems to be doing OK attached to some wood. I purchased this Bolbitus along with some other plants & they all arrived in fantastic condition. Excellent service, great prices & superb products. Thank you.

Ask a question about this product
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

Hi guys, does this tank tolerate liquid carbon? Thanks



Any idea when you will have any more of this. Thanks.


Next week hopefully
