Microsorum pteropus 'Tropica' grows fast and is bigger than M. pteropus. Highly distinctive, with dentate leaves. Older leaves are sometimes lobate (up to 5 cm lobes). M. pteropus 'Tropica' has been bred by and named after the Tropica nursery in Denmark. Microsorum pteropus 'Tropica' is patented and may only be produced commercially by licence. A beautiful solitary plant for large aquariums. [TROPICA]

Although this plant looks slightly different from the standard java fern, it is still essentially the same plant. Care is no different at all. I keep mine planted on pieces of driftwood in a low tech no co2 aquarium.
