Bolbitis Difformis is the larger leaf form of its popular counterpart, Bolbitis Difformis Mini or Bolbitis Difformis Baby Leaf. Like other aquatic Bolbitis, Bolbitis Difformis is an aquatic fern that features leafy foliage that is unique in appearance and rich in coloration. This aquatic plant is fairly slow growing yet easy to maintain and keep within a planted aquarium tank. Bolbitis Difformis’s care is comparable to that of Anubias, Bucephalandra and Cryptocoryne species. While this aquatic fern doesn’t require CO2, the addition of CO2 injection along with soft water and quality lighting helps to promote growth immensely. Bolbitis Difformis does best when attached to aquarium hardscape material such as aquarium driftwood or aquascaping stone. Care should be taken to ensure it is not planted directly into aquarium substrate as this can cause the aquatic plant to rot. Once settled in an aquarium tank, Bolbitis Difformis can be propagated easily by separating the aquatic plant gently along the horizontal rhizome.
