Java Moss does not require any special attention. It accepts all kind of waters, even weakly brackish, and all kind of light qualities. Java Moss once acclimated grows best at 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. It is a low light plant and makes a great foreground plant. Due to its clinging nature, Java Moss can also be made into a moss wall. This can be accomplished by folding a net and spreading the moss evenly across it. Then, the net can be secured together by polyester strings, and held on the aquarium wall by using suction cups. It is a slow starter until it has established itself. It is especially popular with aquarists raising fry (baby fish) , to protect them from cannibalistic adults. Java Moss can be easily propagated via division. It is suitable for both aquariums and vivariums.

You are buying 1 Java moss on a mat. The mat will be 4" x 6."
When I have moss available I sell out quickly so if this is listed as available please get it now as it may not be available tomorrow.
Mats that have plants attached should be planted by burying just the bottom of the mat in your substrate. The top of the mat with the plant should not be buried at all. The best way to do this is to carefully move the mat back and forth as you push it down in your substrate. The weight of the mat itself and having it in your substrate should hold it in place. If it does not stay in place, you can add plant weights to the bottom of the mat by inserting them into the mat. Click HERE to view the weights.
