Common Name: Phoenix Moss
Fissidens fontanus is gorgeous, feathery aquatic moss that will add brightness and dimension to any planted tank. A newly discovered moss that hails from the USA, this plant is adaptable and virtually maintenance-free once it has taken root. While F. fontanus can survive in a variety of conditions, it prefers a lower temperature, around 77°F. Unlike other mosses, F. fontanus can be planted directly into the substrate, or will readily attach itself to an appropriate surface without the nuisance of frequent re-tying. This moss is a popular option for creating a natural look with rocks or driftwood.
Family Name: Fissidentaceae
Origin: United States
Co2: Not necessary
Propagation: Tie to desired surface
Growth rate: Slow

Was a bit unhappy looking with some brown patches, but I know fissidens is always a bit challenging to get going. Seems to be doing well after placement - use some of the mesh to wrap around cholla wood for a nice mossy tree effect!
It was small, but the moss was almost entirely green with newer growth. Really worth getting and will be good to take of an attach to wood.
Fissidens Fontanus on Stainless Steel
I got the fissidens a week or so ago and they're doing great. It came on the steel mesh and I'm planning on glueing it to a small bonsai tree. It's a very slow grower so I have it sitting in a grow out tank right now. Lots of CO2 no livestock with great lights and very little dosing of the water column and it's starting to grow. Once I have enough to cover the tree and it grows out maybe I'll share a pic. Until then, this is another quality product from a good company I'm more than happy to support.
