Variety of Microsorum pteropus with strikingly beautiful long, slender 'hammered out' leaves. Microsorum pteropus ''Philippine'' grows readily on roots and stones, but can also be planted directly on the bottom - but not too deep. The plant is hardy and also suitable for larger aquariums. It is tolerant of salt, and originated from the island of Panay in the Philippines, where it grows right out in the tidal river mouth and thrives both below and above water. See also Microsorum pteropus. [TROPICA]

Ultimate lowlight plant! Sprouts little baby plants all over the leaves and you can pluck them off and stick them in little creavices in driftwood or tie it to decorations.

It turned red because you have high lighting and the plant is using anthocyanins.
