Environment Specifics[edit]

A fast growing plant, perfect for beginners with basic tank lighting. If the light is not enough, spacing between the leaves increases and it can look messy.


Fern-like leaves are larger (10cm (3.9") long) at higher temperatures. Leaves are delicate and easily broken. Though small fragments will readily grow roots.
