This plant has a unique leaf with a brown/green color above and burgundy on the underside, it also has a unique deeply serrated edge, it produces horizontal side shoots that should be removed to keep the plant growing neatly it will also stay more compact with high light and has a slow to medium rate of growth, the plant can also be attached to wood or rocks.

Takashi Amano uses this plant a lot in it's recent aquariums. Never saw this plant available in my region. The fact that this is a stem plant and that it can be attached like the bolbitis or microsorum makes it interesting.

Awesome stem plant, the leaves look like skinny oak tree leaves. I'm very fond of stem plants that grow slowly since they don't overrun the tank and require constant trimming. Great compliment to tanks with driftwood IMO.

indeed, it does grow at a medium pace in my super high light tank compared to other hygro species, very unique looking, almost looks like a bolbitus

This plant requires significant amounts of potassium. Without abundant supply, holes will quickly develop in the older leaves. 30ppm of K is the minimum so be certain you have a potassium fertilizer before attempting to grow this plant.
