What would be the typical height of Java Fern Trident in a low light tank using Excel?
Hi kperera,

Typically my 'Trident' grows about 5"-6" above the height of the hardscape it is attached to.

O.O

Are there any varieties of Java fern that grow bigger than that normally?

I'm just curious. I assumed I had trident. It has very wide, large leaves and not all of them are forked. I am pretty sure it got over 8" in height.

Hi chibikaie,

I have seen two types of Microsorum pteropus 'Trident' offered on the forums; the 'normal' size and an elongated version (sometimes called 'Super Trident') that has leaves up to 14" long. There are probably others in the hobby as well that are yet unidentified.

There's "thread-leaf" java fern or something-or-other that I've seen that's pretty small. My Windelov is smaller than my NLJF.
