Common Name: Borneo Fern

Trichomanes javanicum is a fascinating and delicate species of terrestrial fern native to the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia. This fern is characterized by its thin, translucent fronds that shimmer in the light, giving it an ethereal appearance. In its natural environment, it thrives in humid, shaded environments and is often found growing on moist rocks or tree trunks where it absorbs nutrients from the air and surrounding moisture.

Trichomanes javanicum is prized by plant enthusiasts and aquascapers alike for its unique texture and striking visual appeal, making it an excellent addition to terrariums and paludariums. Its delicate nature requires consistent humidity and gentle care, but its beauty and uniqueness make it a rewarding plant to cultivate.
