Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus)AquariumPlants.com
Grows from a thick rhizome that creeps over logs and rocks attaching itself as it goes. When new plantlets form on old leaves you can remove them, when they are large enough (about 3") and attach them to new places with rubber bands or fine fishing line until they take root. Very easy to grow...does not need much light.

Ordered 2. Received 3 roots per bunch. All in great condition, one lead had a chunk out of it, but all are doing great! Way bigger then they seem in the pictures.
I highly recommend this site for any aquarium plants, best prices, and excellent service.
Arrived healthy even though a late and roughly handled shipment at the hands of Fed EX did the package no favors .
The plant is top notch and looks like someone pays attention to detail and has taken great care in raising these plants and it really shows.
It was not the same as I seen it on the internet but it was still okay
Ordered three bunches...two were okay with probably three 6"-8" leaves, the third only had two, about 4" each. They are healthy though, so should do well.
I bought 1 quantity and it came with 2 plants. Each plant has 2 healthy looking 6~10 inch leaves.
Nice sized plant, very healthy.
the only plant from all plants I ordered from aquariumplants.com came in good condition full of color very satisfied with it . I will recommend to buy it to everyone
