A very fast-growing and low-maintenance plant that can thrive in almost any aquarium.


Java Fern is a very popular plant in the aquarium hobby due to its impressive size, density, and its minimal care requirements.  Java Fern can thrive even in poorly lit aquariums, and in the right conditions it is a very aggressive grower, meaning it provides excellent waste removal from the water column.  This plant is perfect for aquariums that house fish, snails, and dwarf shrimp, as it provides biofilm, hiding places, and security for all aquarium inhabitants.

A Java Fern bunch can be planted all together under your substrate as one plant, or it can be separated into smaller pieces to spread the plant to different locations or multiple aquariums.  The Java Fern bunch in the picture is one that is planted in one of our personal aquariums, and is the same size we send to customers.  All of our plants are bright and healthy because they are kept in a water in a plant-dedicated tank rather than plastic packaging, which means your plant will arrive in top condition.
