Microsorum pteropus or Java fern is a popular aquatic plant hailing from Southeast Asia. It is undemanding and can easily grow in low-lit aquariums as well as under strong lighting. Due to its easy nature, Java fern is highly recommended for beginners. Fish that may otherwise devour plants will most likely stay away from Java fern as it has a repulsive taste.
Java fern does best when attached onto rocks or driftwood where it will bind itself onto the surface. It can be planted in the substrate but ensure that the rhizome (the hard bit between the leaf and the roots) is not buried as it will rot away.
Philipine Java fern is an uncommon variety. It has nicely hammered leaves that are slightly thinner than regular Java fern. It can create a stunning centre piece when placed in between rocks and driftwood
