This plant is sourced from Tropica Aquarium Plants.  This is a family of aquatic ferns that grow on rocks or wood above and below water. This is a form of the narrow leaf java's that stays a little shorter and gets more forks in the leaf and grows more rapidly than typical java ferns.


Description from Tropica Aquarium Plants:

Microsorum pteropus or Java fern is from Asia. Microsorum pteropus ‘Trident’ is a narrow-leaved, smaller form of Microsorum, which like other Microsorum is an easy and safe plant. ’Trident’ is both suitable for beginners, as well as the experienced scaper, and fits both smaller and larger aquariums.

The name ’Trident’ tells that the plant leafs are tripartite, while the leaves can vary from whole to multipartite. Suitable for planting on stones or tree roots. When planted on the bottom layer, avoid covering the horizontal stalk. New, small plants are often created on the leaf tips, and can carefully be pulled off and planted. 


  • Lighting requirement: Moderate to medium light
  • Growth rate: Slow
  • Hardiness: Medium
