Broad Leaf Java Fern microsorum pteropus

Free Gift
Regular price $7.49 Sale price

Microsorum pteropus is a water fern from Asia, 15-30 cm tall, which should be grown on a root or stone, attached with fishing line until it has gained a hold. If it is planted in the bottom, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot. Easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal rhizome. A hardy plant which grows in all conditions. The black spots under the leaves are sporangia (reproductive organs), not signs of disease as many believe.

Type: Rhizomatous
Origin: Asia
Growth rate: Slow
Height: 15 - 30+
Light demand: Low
CO2 : Low

Too small

Hoping for a little bit bigger plants, but too small as well, Aside from that they're not too bad.
