  • 1299

This plant is sourced from Tropica Aquarium Plants.  This is one of our favorite aquatic ferns. Easy to grow with or without CO2. Seems to like some current. Attach this plant to a piece of rock or driftwood with WOOD TIE.


Description from Tropica Aquarium Plants:


Bolbitis comes from West Africa, a fern with beautiful, transparent green leaves, 15-40 cm tall and wide. When planting, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot, and it is best to plant Bolbitis heudelotii on a root or stone.  Easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal rhizome.

The supply of CO2 will considerably enhance growth, which is only optimal in soft, slightly acidic water.




  • Lighting requirement: Moderate to medium light.
  • Growth rate: Medium
  • Hardiness: Medium 
  • Size: 1 pot
