Originating from Asia the Microsorum pteropus is one of many different varieties of this species, each with their own leaf shape.

This plant is extremely undemanding and will grow best tied to rock or wood. Light isn't an issue as this plant will grow well in both low lighting and high lighting tanks.

I was able to split plant down into 2 or 3 decent sized individual plants, as well as a further 3-4 smaller plants. All growing well in a low light non-co2 tank and the growth is still incredible. It's been planted for two weeks and I've had to trim longer leaves weekly, with lots of new growth from the Rhizome, I've tied it to driftwood, or wedged into small cracks in the wood just above the substrate.

when received the plants were in excellent condition and are now attached to my bog wood and stone . They were very good value for the money and they were plenty of them.

Bought plenty of half dead java fern in the past, the plant I got from here was in rude health. Lovely and leafy, recommended for plants.

Ask a question about this product
Is this ok in a non CO2 tank?


This plant does fine without CO2 (even better with!)

Hi. Is the price per pot? Thanks.


Yes :)

helo is pesticides used on the plants ,would they be safe for a shrimp tank?

No pesticides are ever used on our plants and they are safe for use with shrimp tanks.

Hi what price can you do on 30-40 plants if i were to order, as that price is a bit steep to buy in decent numbers

10% off for that qty

As you don't use pesticides as per a previous comment, is there a chance of having snail arrive on a plant? (it's not an issue if there is as I have some snail ravanous dwarf loaches, but just wanted to know)

Does the plant actually come in/with the pot?


Highly unlikely any snails on the plant as they’re kept out of water

Plant comes with pot
