Bolbitis heudelotii

Info

This Congolese water fern grows in habitats like those where Anubias are found. Its powerful rhizome covers stones and roots like a carpet along the banks of rivers and streams. Submersed fronds are dark green, transparent, and incredibly ornamental. Avoid strong light for this plant since it prefers shade. It also prefers fairly strong water movement, e.g., near a filter. A good CO2 supply will ensure lush growth. We highly recommend binding these plants to wood and roots.
