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.

Basic packaging but received ok. Too early for long t

Of all the plants I bought this one is struggling the most. Looks great in the set up but leaves are turning brown and wilting.

This plant arrived in great condition. Cannot wait for it to grow! Would highly recommend ordering from Aqua Essentials.

Really dark, thick leaves and compact enough to secure onto wood easily. Really gorgeous, adds a lovely dimension to a cluster of ferns!

Has gone through a heavy melt but I'm sure it will come back thriving similar to my crypts which are to say the least huge now.

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 

Do I need to quarantine or treat this plant before adding to my aquarium? I.e. are there any pesticides used that could harm my fish and shrimp?


Safe to go straight in. If concerned you can always give it a quick rinse under luke warm tap water.
