Well these two photos should give you an idea on how they grow, the first photo was taken on February 18 and the second photo is taken on July 7...just under 5 months.
The only thing in this tank at that time that I did not change was the Ferns and anubia's in the left side, the balansae's in the middle and the bolbitus in the right corner. The bolbitus started as 3 little bare rhyzomes to give you an idea of how that stuff grows too....

Holy . . . Just a bit of growth going on there Buck. I think that Java ferns should be just the ticket. I'll probably hold off on the C. balansae for a while though That is crazy . . .

Hey, while we're discussing it, will the Windelov leaves grow emersed as well as submersed, and will they flower?

I'd say they get pretty big. I had to sell this one off because it outgrew my 40 breeder.

I just added some Windelov and its grows much "wider" and fuller than regular java fern. The unusual appearance of it really makes it cool looking.

Buck, you've got some huge ones there! What in the world are you feeding them? Small children?

I don't think ferns produce flowers, just spores and baby ferns.

Well I just planted the Java ferns today: two bunches of standard M. pteropus, two bunches of Windelov, and a nice thick bunch of Narrow Leaf. I attached the rhizomes to chunks of lace rock so I can move them around a bit as they grow, but I've got them placed fairly close together right now. I'll post a pic tomorrow when the lights come back on. Can't wait to watch them grow. Thanks again for all the info guys

Just took this pic from above the tank. The ferns aren't very large yet but they are in place on the right side. I've read they're slow growers, how true is that?
