A large leaved aquarium plant with attractive dark green leaves and small sturdy stems. A really easy to keep aquatic plant that asks very little of its water parameters. Best to plant on a rock or stone where the roots trail and it reproduces easily.

Severums and other fish that often eat softer plants seem to dislike this particular plant.


  • Preferred water temperature is 22-28 ºC
  • Ideal water chemistry is pH 6-8.4.
  • Can be kept in a low to high light environment.
  • Suitable in both CO2 and non CO2 tanks.
  • Midground plant

Fantastic plant. Lovely size and vibrant green colour with loads of roots bargain for the price. Arrived well packed will definitely use this company again.

Massive. Too big for my 50ltr but perfect for my 150ltr. Full strong plant that the fish just love playing in.

My first time ordering from aqua essentials and very impressed with the service I received. The java fern I ordered was one of the biggest and healthiest looking ferns I have ever seen and has filled the space at the back of my 180ltr tank perfectly. Would definitely order from them again in the future.

As before when I ordered this product, the plant was in great coindition & large. I am now mainly planting my 8 foot tetra tank with Jave fern and will order a couple more plants when they are back in stock

Ask a question about this product
How tall are these plants?


At the moment about 30cm

could I add these into a garden pond


I wouldn't recommend it for a garden pond. It would need to be warmer.
