Short Narrow Leaf
"Narrow Leaf" in the family Microsorum Pteropus, commonly known as Java fern after the Indonesian island of Java, can be found in Malaysia, Thailand, Northeast India and some regions of China. It is a highly variable plant with several different geographic varieties that vary in leaf size and shape. Found in its natural habitat growing attached to roots and rocks, it can grow in both fully and partially submerged environs. The plant can propagate through small adventitious plants formed on older leaves, which attach themselves to hard substrates.
Several cultivars of Java fern exist, including the "narrow leaf", "needle leaf", "Windelov", "trident", and "lance leaf" variants. Cultivation in the aquarium is usually performed by tying the rhizome to rock or driftwood, instead of planting it directly into the substrate.
It can be cultivated in tap water, dim or bright light, with or without gravel. It is more snail resistant and grows better with higher fish loads
Microsorum pteropus 'Narrow' has narrower leaves, which grow at a less acute angle from the stem than the normal Microsorum pteropus. The plant attaches readily to roots and stones.
This delicate looking fern adds a beautiful look to aquariums, which is also suitable for smaller aquariums. It’s widely used due to its slow growth, unique shape and ease of reproduction and care.
It can be kept with a wide range of fish and doesn’t require strict water parameters, which is why it is so appealing to so many people. They are one of the easiest plants to grow for beginners.
