Ceratopteris siliquosa is a beautiful aquarium plant with a relatively short rhizome. The leaves are all shaped differently and are light green in colour which makes it look quite special. Some people call this a Sumatra fern. It grows to a decent size of about 60 cm in a relatively short period of time.

The strong roots quickly permeate the substrate and it's best to trim the leaves regularly and any new sheets can be cut off and replanted. In general a very decorative aquarium plant looks best planted behind something like a rock or piece of wood and is suitable for beginners and up.

In receipt, I was a little apprehensive about planting this as much of the plant was dead due to broken stems, but I recovered what I could and what I managed to plant is actually flourishing. It's taken very nicely. Using stratum as a base substrate, topped with fluorite black.

Arrived in great condition and managed to get 3 portions out of the one pot. Once it grows in it will fill the back of my 180ltr tank perfectly.

Seemed in good condition when arrived, it was slightly twisted and compressed with being transported; however, a day later in the rank, it has straightened itself, started to twist and establish - now looks absolutely fantastic. Really recommend this unique plant. Seemed well looked after before I purchased it.
