Got some Needle Leaf Java Fern in! Now I need to plant it. What do you think is the best way to plant it in this instance? I can't tie it to the driftwood!

Java fern IME takes very long to transition to emersed form. I'd say keep it in another tank till you're ready to fill this one up

Possibly! But if it really is growth, it's miniscule. I'm not sure if I'm just seeing things!

Thanks! I have to figure out what to do with the Java Fern, I don't currently have anything holding water right now. Everything's dry. So I'll have to start another one I guess.

My mom has some java fern in a clear vase on a windowsill and it's doing well, putting up leaves regularly. She just changes the water out once a week and keeps it as a living decoration. So maybe you could give that a try temporarily?

This is looking great. Your scaping skills have improved quite a bit in the last few journals you have done and this is no exception. Can't wait to see where this goes.
