Microsorum pteropus 'Trident'


‘Trident’ has a decorative filigree look, with split leaves, some more than others, with narrow middle and side lobes. As with the species form, this variety is easy to care for and undemanding. In terms of aquascaping, whether in a large aquarium or a 30 L Nano Cube, this type of Java fern opens up a world of beautiful design options. For a real showstopper, use mature plants on free-standing roots that weave their way through your underwater landscape.
