Anubias nana and Microsorum pteropus


The mangrove root is probably the most popular root variety in aquatics. It not only looks decorative, but is optimal for growth plants such as Anubias and Microsorum. A root planted with 2 different species looks particularly natural. Anubias, the spear leaf and the java fern Microsorum belong to the group of rheophytes and fit very well together. Both are similar in terms of their care requirements, but overall are considered to be particularly easy to care for.
Tip: If the java fern becomes too tall, you can simply remove individual large leaves to reduce its volume.
