Taxiphyllum barbieri from South-East Asia is a hardy plant which makes few demands on the water or light. The moss becomes 3-10 cm thick and grows willingly on any surface, so it is ideal for decorating stones and tree roots or concealing installations in the aquarium. Attach the plant with a piece of fishing line or cotton thread until it has gained a hold on the décor. If its growth becomes too luxuriant, it can be pruned with scissors. In breeding aquariums Taxiphyllum barbieri is a wonderful hiding place for the young fish.

With adequate light and fertilisation, the plant will easily cover the line or tie and all you will see is the moss growing nicely on the piece of decor. Shrimp love to graze on this moss and if you place it on your substrate a carpet effect will form.

Ideal for beginners due to the robust and diverse nature of this aquatic plant.
