Microsorum is a species with many varieties. Microsorum Minor has narrow leaves which grow at a less acute angle from the stem than the normal Microsorum pteropus.

Microsorum are slow growers, and require very few nutrients to survive. Microsorum draw nourishment from the water, and not from the substrate. Like Anubias, Java Fern will attach its roots to driftwood, rocks or any rough surface - do not bury the rhizome in gravel or substrate or it will rot.

Supplied potted in a plastic pot.

Please note: whilst every effort is made to prevent or remove snails and snail eggs, we do not use copper treatments in our systems (because copper is also harmful to shrimp) so cannot absolutely guarantee snail-free. If you are concerned about snails, we recommended that you dip your plants in a snail preventative solution, such as Esha Gastropex, prior to adding to your aquarium. We do not recommend buying treated plants, or administering copper or anti-snail treatments if you have shrimp in your aquarium. Snails are perfectly safe in an aquarium and will not harm your fish.
