This variant of the ever-popular Java Fern has very distinctive “trident” formations on its leaves!
Trident Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus var. “Trident”) is a fascinating variant of the classic Java Fern. This variant is distinctive for its narrow leaves that form trident-like formations instead of the straighter, broader leaves of the standard Java Fern.
Care for this variant is identical to the classic Java Fern, so it should be attached to aquarium décor. It requires only low to moderate lighting and can thrive in a variety of water parameters, including lightly brackish conditions. With quality care, the Trident Java Fern will grow at a moderate rate.
In addition to its attractive appearance, Trident Java Fern provides a valuable refuge for aquarium animals, especially dwarf shrimp, nano fish, and fry. Trident Java Fern can easily flourish and grow to become a major centerpiece of the planted aquarium!
Like most plants, Trident Java Fern will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, Nitrogen and other plant supplements. However, supplementation is not required for this plant to grow and stay healthy.
Approximate shipping size is 3-5 stems at 10-15 inches tall.
