 Planting instructions

You can plant java ferns on driftwood, between rocks, or aquarium decorations. You can also plant them in your substrate but make sure you do not plant any of the rhizomes in your substrate, only the black roots that come off the rhizome. Please go here for more information on planting.


The black spots under the leaves are sporangia (reproductive organs), not signs of disease as many believe.

Java Fern
My java fern plants were a little disappointing. They divided them so small that I couldn't see any rhizome to attach to my driftwood. They were green though and made it through shipping just fine even in Minnesota's current freezing weather.

Excellent Plant!
I received these plants in pretty good condition. There were a few that were dead/dying, but most were healthy and survived. A lot of rhizomes were included in the bundle and now those are sprouting excellent, green, healthy leaves. I can't wait until it takes off and forms a java jungle. I attached them on my driftwood and they are all thriving (I use Excel and have flourite substrate). Very easy to care for.

Black spots.
Mine came with black spots right out of the package and not very healthy looking in general.

I have bought many java ferns and I must say these are the best looking Ferns I have found. Many Were forming new ferns, that is what the little black dot on the leaf is, its where another java fern will form and begin to root. I highly recommend the Java ferns from PAC (planted aquariums central)
