Java Fern is a type of plant known as a rheophyte, which means it is able to grow on stones, rocks, or driftwood. Because it can adapt to a wide range of water conditions, Java Fern is one of the most popular aquatic plant for your aquarium.

            Great Quality

            1st time buyer and extremely satisfied with my order. The plants shipped quickly and arrived healthy. They are doing great in my tank! I definitely will be ordering more plants in the future.

            1st time buyer, 1st time review. Everything is exactly as they stated. Came in beautiful and healthy. Just ordered an additional round of plants. Great job, great plants!

            Great quality plants

            Plants landed today and look to be in great shape. They're part of my total replant following a massive post-heat wave meltdown. I've never seen anything like it. Only remaining material from before are Crypt roots (which are all sprouting new plants.. Massive wall of Vals and carpet of Crypts completely collapsed. Big algae bloom resulted. Your Java Ferns, Vals, Bucephalandra, and tiny Anubias plants are all in. The one "mix variety" Bucephalandra drift wood piece wants to float, but partial burying is keeping it down. Combined with some LFS stem plants, hoping this will be a stable recovery. Thanks!

            Very clean, healthy, green plants. They deliver on the advertised 6+ leaves; although, I was surprised this meant those leaves were provided as many small pieces of rhizome in a package. This worked out fine since I was able to glue them to small pieces of lava rock to place in my aquarium.

            Very stiff and vibrant plants. Big pack is well worth it

            Doing great

            They came in healthy and are doing great in my tanks.
