I heard this is how Java Fern propogate, but it is not just growing on the top of the leaf, it is all over the underside of the leaves. Last time I cute my Java Fern I also cut it a little bit too much and have many 1 leaf plants that are now starting to die. Is this normal/what is this?

Someone told me that this was moss growing from the java fern because it has the little spikes sticking out from the "roots". So I just want to make sure, this IS just propagation, correct?

Once they get some size, just pop them off the leaf and you have a new plant. I started with a few leaves of java and now have around twenty five plants after a couple months. Gotta love low maintenance plants!

You might also check out the search function, it really can be your best friend.

This is actually a topic that has been discussed on many different occasions. Good luck!
