The Java fern is the most popular type of fern for aquatics, and is widespread in tropical Asia. This species varies widely and displays a number of different leaf shapes and sizes. Its undemanding nature makes it the perfect plant for beginners. It grows best when the rhizomes are anchored to rocks or driftwood. Low to medium lighting is completely sufficient, although it also grows well under strong lighting. Older leaves can sometimes produce plantlets that can easily be cut away and reattached in another place using a piece of thin fishing line. Normally delivered within 3 – 5 days but on occasion this maybe delayed which is why this was extended for delivery.
