Microsorum pteropus is a highly variable species, and new varieties are easily bred. M. pteropus ''Narrow'' has narrower leaves, which grow at a less acute angle from the stem than the normal M. pteropus. The plant attaches readily to roots and stones. A decorative plant, which is also suitable for smaller aquariums. [TROPICA]

I acquired a few of these plants about a month ago and put them in my 10 gallon tank. When they arrived, they had lots of dying leaves. I cut off quite a few leaves and the plants are now recovering nicely. This is a great plant and works well in my 10 gallon with low light (Two 10W "mini" flourescent bulbs). This has been such a great plant that I am excited to try the other varieties of microsorum pteropus!
