Microsorum Pteropus AKA Java Fern Narrow Leaf is the skinnier cousin of the very common Java Fern. Its sharp and narrow leaves grow out to be only half an inch wide at most. This easy-to-grow beginner plant is only available in 3x2" mats and can essentially fill a background or midground of any sized tank. It can grow great in low light conditions and is forgiving in a wide range of water parameters.
The plant can be attached directly onto driftwood, rocks or any aquarium decoration using thread or glue. Make sure to keep the rhizomes above your substrate or the plant can begin to rot. Propagation is easy and straightforward; simply cut or pull apart rhizomes to be replanted/reattached.
