This can be grown under a wide range of conditions, recommended for breeders, beginners and all.
Driftwood is known to naturally release tannins into the aquarium which can stain your water color slightly yellow, similar to tea. This is natural and soft water loving species such as South American fish love this type of tannic acid. Doing several water changes and adding some activated carbon to your filter will help clear up the water. Overtime, the wood will naturally stop releasing tannins.
- Java Fern is an epiphytic aquarium plant. This means it can grow fine when attached to aquascaping hardscape like driftwood and stones.
- Burying the rhizome will cause the plant to melt and die.
- Java Fern will propagate through its leaves. Dots on the underside of its leaves are normal and not a cause for concern.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
- This particular style of Java Fern comes already attached to a piece of aquarium hardscape and is ready to place into your planted aquarium as is.
