Care Guide: Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus) is an undemanding and adaptable aquarium plant that can thrive in various setups. Follow this care guide to ensure optimal growth and vibrancy for your Java Fern:


  • Java Fern thrives in low to moderate lighting conditions. Avoid intense, direct light to prevent algae growth on the leaves.

Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: Maintain a temperature range of 68-82°F (20-28°C).
  • pH: Java Fern can tolerate a wide pH range, typically between 6.0-7.5.
  • Hardness: Adaptable to various water hardness levels.


  • Attach Java Fern to rocks, driftwood, or other decorations using thread or fishing line. Do not bury the rhizome in the substrate; instead, let it be exposed.


  • Java Fern is not a heavy feeder and can absorb nutrients from the water column. You can use a liquid fertilizer with a balanced formula, but it’s not strictly necessary.

CO2 Injection:

  • While Java Fern can grow without additional CO2, supplementing with CO2 can enhance growth and overall health.


  • Trim any old or damaged leaves to encourage new growth.
  • Algae can be gently wiped off the leaves with a soft brush or cloth during water changes.


  • Java Fern reproduces through rhizome division. Once the plant matures, new daughter plants may develop on the rhizome.


  • Java Fern is compatible with a wide range of freshwater fish and invertebrates.
  • It can be used in community tanks, shrimp tanks, and even with more delicate species.

Note: Java Fern is a great choice for aquariums with low light and minimal maintenance. Its rhizome structure makes it an excellent option for attaching to various surfaces in your aquascape.
