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.

We strongly recommend when purchasing live plants you opt for Express Delivery.

Java moss, I purchased 3 tubs of this moss for my shrimp tank, I glued them to the shrimp tubes and the substrate and all have taken hold. They all look healthy and starting to spread. Well worth the money.

More moss than i expected and looked green and fresh. Was well grown and matted together making tying to my bonsai tree easy. A month later the java moss has grown and looks healthy.
