Java fern

Java fern is another aquarium plant that offers the best of both worlds. Beautiful yet low requirements (Does not require CO2 injection nor very strong lighting). In fact, it will even grow in low light, only at a slower rate of growth.

Java fern is most attractive when tied to driftwood or bogwood.

Java fern grows best in cool temperates between 20 to 28 degrees celcius although they can tolerate temperatures up to 30 degrees celcius.

Water parameters like pH and hardness are not important since java fern is a hardy plant.

Due to its dense and relatively large leaves, snails often hide in them. Be careful of this when you introdouce java ferns into your aquarium, you may want to treat it first.
