I rescued about 25 pieces of java type ferns from big box pet store, $1.
All this stuff looked terrible, black spots and holes, could not be sold.
6 months have passed, all damaged has been replenished with new plantlets from leaves.

Problem was this didn't provide instant beautiful plants.
Had to sit it and forget it for a while.

I was expecting something terrible.
That doesn't seem bad at all.
As long as it doesn't get worse all should be fine.

Side note: After purchasing java ferns from others on this forum.
Some has came in beautiful got moved to my tank and remained great.
Others have went through a major change darkening and loaded with new plantlets.
No complaints here either, forum members have treated me well.
It may have to do with the environment change they are put through.
Who's to say what ferts if any they have been exposed to / even CO2?
Reading that some is grown emersed, dumped in our tanks is a big change.

Out of 5 tanks that contain java fern of some type none has kicked the bucket.
