|Kathyy||Mine grew but it looked sort of desperate, just sprouted a few leaves then each new leaf grew new plants and the roots didn't cling to the wood and were sparse, long and stringy. Not a very attractive growth pattern. The pinnate leaved baby plant has vanished, I think the plant is now gone from the tank as I pulled all but that baby plant out.|

There's nothing wrong with it - it has good color, and hasn't lost any leaves. Just growing v-e-r-y slowly.

|Shawn123||Is yours not doing well? Looks good in the pic. Mine does well in a similar situation to yours...on driftwood near the filter overflow. I dose flourish 4x a week and api leaf zone once a week. Had since jan or feb and it has put out leaves and roots steadily.|

Mine is neither growing or rotting right now. Although I swear I have one new growth on one of them, but as soon as I noticed it, it stopped LOL.

Its a slow grower.

It was struggling in my tank. The old fronds frantically sent out baby plants but it never looked comfortable so I pulled it out. To my surprise there was a 1" long frond that was not the 3 lobed sort there as well so I reglued it closer to the filter return where there is more turbulence. Last week it was still there so there is hope yet.
And researching this came up with this thread from the Barre report. The photo in the first post looks like my changling. http://www.barrreport.com/showthread...is-heteroclita
Guess I shouldn't expect big things from this species.

Anyone have any luck with Asian water fern?
I found a few threads where people were trying to ID it, and one person who said they had it.
I was gifted with it a month ago. Have it tied to some driftwood, not far from the filter outflow, since I've read they grow best with some current.
Any particular suggestions for the plant in a low-tech 20 gallon long? I dose with Flourish 2-3 times a week, API Leaf Zone, and API Co2 Booster every other day (there's anacharis in the tank, and more carbon makes it melt).
Here's a photo. (Pardon the shadows, the way the tank is positioned, it's almost impossible to get good shots of it except at night.)
