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.

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
