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.
Hi all! Brand new here. I am very much a newbie when it comes to planted tanks. I have a 10 gallon in the bedroom that through sheer beginners luck has come out really very pretty. I am in the process of putting a 29 together, and I have a question regarding this plant. I've read that you do NOT just push the plant down into the substrate, right? I am using sand from Home Depot called Builders sand. Can someone please share some instructions on how to tie this to something.
